Black Queens star Priscilla Okyere opens up on early struggles

Black Queens midfielder Priscilla Okyere revealed that her parents were not really supportive of her career choice and she was criticized for it.

The 25-year-old noted that she came from a family with three brothers and three sisters and her gradual rise to the tp of women's football was far from easy.

“When you’re a woman and you want to play football people will criticise you because they think football is only for men. In my family my dad was not supportive my mom was also 50-50 because if my father doesn’t want me to play she can’t push me because there is no money,” she told CAF online.

Okyere started her senior career with Ghanaian side Ampem Darkoa before earning a transfer to Serbian outfit ZFK Spartak Subotica. She also enjoyed a spell with Spanish side Rayo Vallecano.

Okyere now features for Gintra Universitetas in Lithuania.
