Former national team player and coach, Christian Chukwu, has called on the continental football governing body, Confederation of International Football (CAF) to introduce a Champions League for the continent’s women footballers.
According to Chukwu,the introduction of Women Champions League by CAF will help in the development of women football on the continent especially at the clubsides level.
He said such a development would encourage and facilitate the establishment of competitive and virile premier leagues in African countries.
“If CAF introduces a club championship cup competition for women, it will be very nice for women football development in Africa.
“The only challenge would be financing, because I don’t see government sponsoring it since they have found it difficult to sponsor the men’s premier league,” Chukwu said.
The former Super Eagles coach however urged multi-national companies to be ready to sponsor the league in order to make it successful.
