Fifa referee Mercy Tagoe keen on coaching career

Posted: 25 October 2011 Time: 15:19

Fifa referee Mercy Tagoe is hoping she can build a successful career in coaching beginning with a national team job after she attended interviews with the GFA last week. 

Tagoe who represented Ghana at the women's world cup as a player and has refereed at the highest level of the women's game including the women's world cup and the African Women's Championships is keen to take up a new path as coach.

She appeared before the GFA committee working on selecting coaches for the national teams and says she will be happy to start that career as an understudy to a more experienced coach.

"Truth be told I was a bit scare when I saw the shortlist. That I had to compete with people with such wealth of experience in the field was an honour and I would be willing to work under anyone of them as an assistant if I do not get the job but offered that position," the former Ghana referee of the year told the Daily Graphic.

"I intend to build a career in coaching and I'd have to start from somewhere," she added.

Tagoe will discover is her application was successful with the selection committee due to make a recommendation of the successful applicants to the executive committee this week.
