'I have been coaching Hasaacas Ladies for 18 years without salary' -Yussif Basigi

Published on: 14 December 2021

Hasaacas Ladies coach, Yusif Basigi has revealed that he is yet to take a dime as salary for the 18 years he has been coaching the western giants. 

Yusif Basigi enjoyed a successful 2021 with the Doos after leading the team to four titles in five finals.

However, the experienced tactician has been working for free as he has not received a penny in salary since leading the club from 2003.

"I have been coaching Hasaacas Ladies for 18 years. I'm the first coach of the team when it was formed in June 2003. I have coached all these years without a salary. My joy is seeing a lot of young girls transforming their lives through football," Basigi told Angel FM.

"I picked some of these girls from Primary school and now some playing professional football in Europe and building houses. That's very rewarding for me," he added.

Basigi is the most successful coach to lead a female team in Ghana, having won multiple titles with Hasaacas Ladies.
