According to the vocal sports presenter, most female players that could have contributed immensely to female football in the country lost interest in the profession because of they faced sexual harassment by their coaches.
He also noted that, it has become an industry for female players to give themselves out to coaches in other to be gain their favor and those who are unwilling to do so are sidelined.
“Women football will never grow if coaches don’t stop harassing female players with sex (Sexual Harassment). I have noticed that, the frequent harassment of female players from their coaches has made most of the players lost interest in the game. A player is there to play and not for sex but most female players give themselves out to coaches to gain favors from their coaches”.
Prince Mukadi who is worried about the situation said Intimidation, harassment and violence have no place in football hence the need for stakeholders to intervene in that regard. He also urged women who have interest in football to venture into coaching to help curb the barbaric situation.

“Remember Intimidation, harassment and violence has no place in football. I urge women to go into coaching to prevent all what they are experiencing in our current generation. We would expose all of them on #ZaaSports soon. #ZaaSports”
