GFA makes allegations against Laryea Kingston as they accept his resignation as Black Starlets coach



The Ghana Football Association has welcomed the decision by Laryea Kingston to resign from his position as head coach of the Black Starlets, albeit with some allegations that give insight into the relationship between Kingston and the Football Association.

In a press release, which has now been revised, the Ghana Football Association claimed that Laryea Kingston announced his resignation to the players of the Black Starlets “using inappropriate language.”

The Ghana Football Association also claimed that “Coach Kingston got off the team bus while the team was on its way to the team hotel.

“He failed to attend the team’s evening meeting with the Management Committee and has since not reported to the team hotel. The GFA duly accepts Laryea’s resignation,” reads part of the statement issued on Sunday, May 26, 2024.

Laryea Kingston announced his resignation from the Black Starlets following their 2-1 defeat to Burkina Faso in the WAFU Zone B Under-17 championship.

The Starlets, who coasted through their first two matches in the competition, fell to the Burkinabes in the game played at the University of Ghana Sports Stadium on Saturday, May 25, 2024.

“I know Ghanaians know me as a player and are familiar with the sacrifices I made for the country during my playing days. I gave my all as a player, but in the end, I wasn’t happy. I put more focus on my coaching career and educated myself to make sure I came back to change the narrative around Ghanaian Football.

“Within these past seven months as Head Coach, I’ve given my all. I decided when we came back from Russia that I would resign after the WAFU competition. The explanation will come later,” he said.

Under Laryea Kingston, the Black Starlets scored 54 times and conceded 15 goals.
