Hasaacas Ladies head coach Yusif Basigi says the postponement of the CAF Women's Champions League qualifiers will give him ample team to prepare his side for the tournament.

The competition was set to kick off from July 17- 30 in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire but has been postponed to July 24- August 5.

According to sources, CAF is yet to release its financial commitment to the organizers for the competition.

Speaking in an interview on the postponement of the competition, Yusif Basigi said the change in date is a blessing for his team.

“The change of date for me is a blessing in disguise because some of my players have some knocks that we are working on so right now that we have a week more, they will be fit for the competition so yes it is a blessing in disguise for me.”, he told Happy FM.

“ I have monitored our first opponent (River Angels). They are not a bad side but trust Hasaacas Ladies because we are equally good so they won’t find it easy with us the same way we won’t find it easy with them because they are a good side.”

“For me, every team is a good team. I learned we have about three Ghanaians in the Niger team so it means they are doing well. Personally, I am ready for every team. I won’t change my approach because any approach I use against River Angels will be the same that I will use throughout.”

Basigi has set a target of reaching the maiden edition of the tournament which will be held in Egypt.

“Our automatic goal is to qualify for the main competition in Egypt. At the end of the competition, it will be Hasaacas Ladies and another club that will qualify.”

Hasaacas Ladies winners of the Women's Premier League and the FA Cup are currently preparing for the competition at the Ghanaian Soccer Center of Excellence-Prampram.
