Laryea Kingston eyes Ghana national team coaching job

Former Black Stars midfielder, Laryea Kingston has said that his dream is to handle one of the national teams of Ghana.


Two years, after retiring from active football, the erstwhile Hearts Of Oak player has enrolled for a coaching course in Ghana. The course was organized by Confederation of African Football, through the Ghana Football Association.


Kingston, together with other participants, received CAF License B Certificate after the programme which was held at Winneba.
Kingston who has had stints with some European clubs is hoping to get the nod to coach any of Ghana’s national teams in future.
He mentioned that he would be starting his coaching career at a football club before he shifts his attention to national teams.


He revealed that about three division one teams have approached him after the coaching course came to an end, noting that he is looking into their offers before he takes a decision.
‘’My target now is to coach a club. I think it will be prudent for me to begin there,’’ he told Agyenkwa Sports.
‘’However, my biggest dream is to coach any of Ghana’s national teams, the U-17, U-20 and even the Black Stars when the time is due.
‘’At the moment I have been helping a certain division two side around where I reside. But about two to three division one teams have shown interest in me. I’m now considering their offers to know where I will go’’.


Kingston played for Maccabi Ahi Nazareth and Hapoel Tel Aviv in Israel. He also had a stint with Scottish outfit Hearts of Midlothian.
He was part of the squad that qualified Ghana to its first World Cup in Germany but couldn’t make the list to the tournament due to a ban.
Kingston made 41 appearances for the Black Stars, scoring six goals in the process.
