Richard Kingson Not Lost Out On Black Stars Return
Veteran goalkeeper Richard Kingson has not given up hopes of returning to the Black Stars in the not-too distant future, his younger brother Laryea has revealed.
Kingson, 34, has been frozen out of the Ghanaian national team for close two two years due his club inactiveness.
The former Wigan Athletic shot-stopper is still without a club since leaving Blackpool in 2011.
His lack of club action cost him a place in the Black Stars ahead of the 2012 African Cup of Nations held in Gabon and Equtorial Guinea and has since been overlooked by new coach Kwesi Appiah.
Kingson’s younger brother Laryea has revealed the longest-standing Black Stars goalkeeper still dreams of a return to the national team.
“He still feels he has what it takes to help the national team again,” Kingston said
“He has an advantage because he is a goalkeeper and for them they can keep for a very long time.
“He is still active and every time we are talking is all about football and for him he still wants to play.”
Kingson was Ghana’s undisputed number one for over a decade until Adam Kwarasey burst onto the scene in the run up to the last years African Cup of Nations.
He is widely regarded for his exploits at the 2006 and 2010 World Cup in Germany and South Africa respectively and fondly remembered for his impressive performance at the 2010 Nations Cup in Angola where he led the Black Stars to win silver.
But age seems to have caught up with the ex- Great Olympics great who has not seen competitive action due to his clublessness.
