Coach of the Rwandan Women’s team, Grace Nyinawumuntu has been suspended following her provocative comments regarding the Black Queens after her side suffered a  7-0 defeat last Wednesday in the first leg of the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) qualifiers.

Right from kickoff, the Black Queens dominated their hosts’ home turf at the Kigali Pele Stadium and wrecked the She-Wasps’ chances of securing a single goal.

After the severe beating, the disgruntled coach described the Ghanaian players as possessing male hormones and looking like men. According to her, this intimidated her players into an early concession.

“They have girls who we think have male hormones. They are girls who are like men. Our team was scared…when they got to the pitch, they conceded because they were scared,” she claimed.

The Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) has consequently suspended the football coach “until further notice, due to (the) inappropriate choice of diction she used after the game between Rwanda and Ghana,” it said in a statement on X.

“The remarks made by the coach of the national women about the players of Ghana national women’s team are in violation of the rules and values of football in Rwanda.

“We remind members of FERWAFA to desist from behavior and remarks that are not aligned with the truth, have no factual basis, and are not professional,” it added.
