Former Ghanaian shot-stopper Richard Kingston has revealed that he was very shocked when his brother [Laryea Kingston] was dropped from the 2010 world cup in South Africa.
Laryea Kingson who missed the 2006 world cup in Germany due to suspension was again dropped by the former head coach Milovan Rajevac ahead of the FIFA World Cup in South Africa, despite his form during the qualification.
According to his brother, ‘Olele’ on Joy FM, Laryea was on top of his form and should have made the squad.
“When he [Laryea Kingson] was dropped in the 2006 tournament, it was a 50-50 decision,” Richard Kingston told Joy FM.
“Personally, I was not hurt much like 2010. I felt he should have been there. I felt so bad that I conceded three, or four goals against Holland.”
“I went off because he deserved to be there. He played the qualifiers, and he was fit and in form. I even went to the coach and asked him why he didn’t pick Laryea Kingston because he deserved to be there.”
“I thought he would be called to compensate for the 2006 disappointment,” he added.
“Richard Kingson represented Ghana in 2006 and 2010 world cup respectively.
