Former Hearts of Oak and Ghana winger, Laryea Kingston has reiterated that he is ready to assist CK Akonnor when he is called on.

Kingston is currently having his coaching badges with Right to Dream Academy where he is also helping.

According to him, an opportunity to work under Akonnor would help him to develop as a coach towards the future.

“It will be a dream come true to play a part in the national team with the Black Stars and I will accept a role when offered the chance by the coach,” Kingston told Graphic Sports.

“Like I always say, I have a dream of coaching the Black Stars in the future, and playing a role in the team’s set up now will help build my capacity for the future.”

Kingston was capped 41 times at the international level and scored six times in the process during his playing days with the Black Stars.

Kingston holds a CAF License B certificate and is working on a UEFA License B badge.

In recent years, he has been busy developing young talents at the Akosombo-based Right to Dream Academy, and had a stint with the Under-19 side of a Danish club, Nordsjaelland, and worked with his compatriot, Mas-Ud Dramani, who is in charge of the team's U-19 team.

Meanwhile, Akonnor and the Black Stars are preparing for the upcoming 2021 African Cup of Nations double-header qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe later this month.
