Information reaching DAILY GUIDE SPORTS indicates that coach of the Black Stars, Milovan Rajevac, was subjected to a serious verbal pounding by Laryea Kingston, who felt very bitter about being axed from the final 23-man squad for the World Cup in South Africa.

The midfielder was prevented from physically assaulting Rajevac, but the Serbian manager was not spared the verbal attacks of the midfielder, according to

An incensed Kingston had to be held back by the vice president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Fred Pappoe, as he went for the coach with an arm raised and a clenched fist.

Kingston verbally attacked the cowering coach repeatedly in a very loud angry outburst.

“I swear to God you are not a good coach. You don't know anything about football, you stupid man!,” Kingston yelled in the foul-mouthed explosion which lasted over five minutes.

Kingston seems to have followed in the footsteps of Baba Armando who accused officials of taking bribes from players before the final squad for the 2006 World Cup was named.

Francis Dickoh also verbally abused coach Claude Le Roy after he was left out of the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations squad, and like Kingston, it looks like he will not be entertained in future assignments.

Meanwhile, the release of the final 23-man squad has received mixed reactions by Ghanaians.

Most of the young players that were instrumental in the outstanding performance of the Black Stars at the Nations Cup in Angola were included in the final list. Youthful players like Isaac Vorsah, Lee Addy, Andre Dede Ayew, Jonathan Mensah and Samuel Inkoom all made the final squad.

The six that were dropped included big names such as Eric Addo, Laryea Kingston and Haminu Draman. Also dropped were Agyemang Badu (due to injury), Goalkeeper Stephen Adams and Bernard Kumordzi.

It would definitely gladden the hearts of most Ghanaian fans that Coach Rajevac had included the likes of in-form Derek Boateng, Quincy Owusu-Abeyie and new Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng.

Ghana's World Cup preparations suffered a blow a few days ago when news broke that the star of the team, Michael Essien, had been ruled out of the Mundial.

This blow notwithstanding, the Black Stars had gone on with their preparations at the team's base in France, culminating in the release of the final 23-man squad yesterday.

The Black Stars will play two international friendlies - on June 1 against Holland in Rotterdam and June 5 against Latvia in London- before heading for South Africa for the World Cup.

Ghana are in Group D of the 2010 World Cup, alongside Germany, Australia and Serbia.
