Meet Mustapha Fudail Capito The Secret behind Sekondi Hasaacas Ladies Recent Resurgence
Success they say have soo many branches and its isnt different from what we are seeing right now at Sekondi Hasaacas Ladies. The team, after suffering two(2) defeats in the opening games of the Women’s Premier league,have gone ahead to record four(4) wins on a bounce.
What makes the whole thing so pleasant is that they have scored 21 goals without conceding any which makes them the most fearsome team in the league as well as the best Defensive team in the league.
In all this, definitely, there is a brain behind this feat and as usual the name of the Head Coach comes to mind. Coach Yusif Basigi who is the head coach of the Ghana National U20 women’s team(The Black Princesses) doubles as the coach for Hasaacas Ladies but due to National team duties and assignments there was the need to find somebody who will prepare the grounds for him and Yes… The Man who is making all the news surfaced… Mustapha Fudail
