Patricia Mantey: Former Black Queens goalie appeals for funds to undergo ligament surgery

Former Ghana goalkeeper Patricia Mantey is appealing for funds to undergo a ligament surgery.

The long-serving Black Queens shotstopper has been in crutches since 2021 after suffering an injury while in action for Immigration Ladies.

Mantey, 31, featured for Ghana from 2012 to 2018.

“I sustained my ligament injury in October 2021 while playing a friendly game with my club at McDan Astro Turf.

“It was a corner kick, so I jumped into the air and caught the ball. When I landed, I realized my leg had twisted,” Mantey revealed in an interview with Asempa FM.

“After my MRI test, the doctor told me that my ligament tissues had torn into pieces, and I needed to undergo surgery, which cost GHC 60,000.

“Although Immigration still pays me, I appeal to the GFA, Ministry of Youth and Sports, and the general public to support me with money to undergo ligament surgery.”

Patricia Mantey played for the Black Queens during the maiden edition of theWafu Zone B Women’s tournament.
