A member of the Black Queens management committee Rosalind Amoh has confirmed to GBC Sports that gaffer of the senior national Women's Team, the Black Queens has resigned from his post.

News of Didi Dramani's resignation came as a shock to football fans as the Black Queens have a month to prepare for the WAFU "Zone B" tournament in Ivory Coast.

The Queens who are without a substantive coach will open their campaign against host nation Ivory Coast before taking on Burkina Faso and Niger to wrap up their involvement in group A.

According to Rosalind Amo, Assistant Coach Mercy Tagoe will have to lead the ladies to this tournament as a substantive coach searched.

For the interim, as we haven't named a new coach, it is not hard to reason that she may be conformed because we have to prepare for WAFU.

Before her appointment as assistant coach, Mercy Tagoe was the Head Coach of Division One side Amedaus Professionals. Mercy is also a retired FIFA referee and played as a defender in the National team.

Mercy Tagoe has a herculean task of preparing the Queens for the tournament as this competition will set the tone for November when Ghana hosts the Africa Women's Championship.

But it is still not clear when the team will start camping.
