Former Ghana Black Maidens captain, Abdulai Mukarama, has signed her first professional contract with Spanish female topflight club, Deportivo Alaves Femenino.
The Black Queens striker joined the Spanish club on a two-year deal from Ghanaian club Nothern Ladies FC.
Abdulai Mukarama just completed her college education with American University, Tyler Junior College, where she helped them win the national state championship.
“Deportivo Alavés and Abdulai Mukarama have reached an agreement whereby the Ghanaian forward will become a new Albiazul player for the next two seasons,” wrote Deportivo Alaves.
“Abdulai Mukarama [Ghana, 2002] occupies the forward position and comes to the Gloriosas from Northem Ladies FC. Last season she competed in LSU Soccer, the American university league, where she managed to be the top scorer of the championship,” added the club.
She shot to prominence when she represented Ghana at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Uruguay, 2018. She scooped the Golden Boot award as the Black Maidens exited the competition at the quarter-final stage. The former Northern Ladies player was also crowned Bronze Ball winner at the tournament.
