Fast-rising coach Mavis Anane Appiah wants to become the first female coach to qualify a side to the Ghana Premier League.

It looks like a huge task but the 26-year-old is determined to punch above her weight.

She has started on a bright note by leading Sunyani-based DC United to the summit of the Brong Ahafo Zone IA table.

''I think here in Ghana no female coach has been able to qualify a male team to Division One to the Premier and to the CAF Championship. I think that is one of my dreams that I would like to achieve as female coach for Ghana,'' Appiah told Soccer Africa on SuperSport TV.

She first joined DC United as an assistant coach last year and in 2017 was given the job as head coach of the Sunyani-based club in the Brong Ahafo Region.

Appiah studied coaching as part of her BSc degree in Physical Education, which she completed last year at the University of Education, Winneba.

She holds a CAF coaching licence C.
