Published on: 07 April 2017

Former Ghana attacker Laryea Kingston wants the Ghana Football Association and new coach Kwasi Appiah to consider his brother Richard Olele Kingston for the goalkeeper’s trainer role.

There are talks that coach Appiah's backroom staff should consist of ex players.

One name that has come up is former Ghana goalkeeper Richard Kingston- many are of the view that he should be appointed as the next goalkeeper's trainer.

Laryea Kingston, a younger brother of Olele says his experience cannot be ignored.

‘’ Olele has a lot of experience and has what it takes to make Black Stars a strong team. He is one of the best goalkeepers the country has ever had. When u are selecting a goalkeeper trainer, you need someone who knows the game very well.’’ He told Abusua FM

‘’Since he [Olele] retired, the Black Stars team has never seen any good goalkeeper like him again. You need such a man in your team

‘’I think the perfect man for the team manager job is Stephen Appiah, remember a lot of the guys respect him and are looking up to him. With the respect they have for him, I don’t think any boy can disrespect or misbehave in camp. He stressed.

‘’I think the former Black Stars players should be given the chance to work in the team. It will help us a lot.

‘’I’m pleading with the FA and Ghanaians to give him time. I am a former player and I know how it is.

He also highlighted on the need for the FA allow the coach is his own backroom staff

‘’ I don’t think it is a good idea for the FA to choose assistant coach or back room staff for Kwesi Appiah. He should be given the chance to choose people he trust and think he has confidence in them to work with. If you don’t have the right people around you, things will be difficult for you some assistant coaches will sabotage you when you are working’’
