Laryea Kingston expresses readiness for Black Stars job if offered

The assistant Black Starlets coach, Laryea Kingston, has expressed his willingness to take over as the next coach of the Black Stars when the opportunity is presented to him.

Following the dismissal of Chris Hughton for non-performance, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is actively seeking a new coach, and Kingston believes he is the right person for the job.

The 43-year-old former Black Stars winger, who earned 42 caps for the national team and scored six goals, is confident in his ability to manage the national team and guide it back to its glorious days. 

He told Graphic Sports in an interview that he was qualified to handle the national team and highlighted his experience and understanding of what it took to succeed at the international level.

During his playing career with the Black Stars, Kingston formed a formidable midfield partnership with players like Michael Essien, Stephen Appiah, and Sulley Muntari, which was considered one of the best in the world at the time.

"I know the level at which I am now," Kingston stated confidently, expressing his readiness for the significant coaching role. He is eager to contribute to the national team's success and believes he has the qualities needed for the job.

If appointed, Laryea Kingston would join the ranks of former players like Charles Kwablan Akonnor and James Kwasi Appiah, who have previously coached the national team.

Kingston's desire to add his name to this list suggests a strong belief in his coaching abilities and a commitment to contributing to the development of Ghanaian football.

The endorsement of Laryea Kingston for the Black Stars coaching job is gaining support, with Ghana Premier League legend, Charles Taylor, also advocating for his consideration. 

Taylor has suggested that the GFA should take a closer look at both Laryea Kingston and Michael Essien as potential candidates for the coaching position of the national team.

The call for former players like Kingston and Essien to be considered for coaching roles reflects a trend where ex-players are increasingly seen as valuable assets in guiding the next generation of football talent.

Their experience as players, coupled with their knowledge of the game, is often seen as beneficial in coaching capacities.

Charles Taylor's endorsement aligns with the idea that individuals who have had successful careers in the Ghana Premier League and on the international stage can bring a unique perspective and understanding to coaching roles.

It also adds to the growing sentiment that appointing coaches with a strong connection to Ghanaian football can positively impact the performance and development of the national team.
