Ghana FA don’t want me near the national team - Kingston

The controversial midfielder has raised many eyebrows again with claims that some FA officials are behind his national team snub

Former Ghana midfielder Laryea Kingston has blamed the Ghana Football Association for sidelining him from the national team.

Kingston was one of the committed Black Stars players during his national team days approaching every single international match with all seriousness earning 41 appearances in the period of 2002-2010.

After several stints in Europe, Kingston returned to Ghana and joined his former club Hearts of Oak in January 2012 on a one-and-a-half year contract to revive his career earning man-of-the-match accolades before disciplinary issues made him fall out with his employers.

The 32-year-old who is currently serving a suspension from Hearts of Oak claims some  Ghana FA officials are blocking his Black Stars return.

“I see the GFA officials just don’t want to see my face in the national team," Kingston told Accra-based  Asempa FM. "Otherwise I should be making a return by now following the efforts I have made."

“I don’t know why, they (Ghana FA officials) are politicians so I have stopped worrying myself over it. Are they saying all the players playing in the local league are better than me?

“I should be at least in the local Black Stars,” he stressed.
