Former Ghana international midfielder Laryea Kingston has urged the Ghana Football Association to develop a long-term plan in order to reclaim lost glory.
The various national teams including the Black Stars have failed to shine in recent times and the former Hearts of Oak and Great Olympics winger believes the country can be competitive if only the country’s football governing body puts in place a long-term plan for the national teams.
Speaking in an interview with Bryt FM, Kingston said, “We need a long term planning, let say 5-year plan. Currently people will say the U-17 team is not performing, recently they went to the WAFU in Togo and failed to qualify”
“Ones they have failed, they will have to wait for two more years. So I think this is the time the Ghana FA must start developing the U-17 team for the next two years. They should go and do good recruitment, scouting and then keep them in camp-like our time”
According to him, the Ghana U-17 ability to win the 1995 World Cup is as a result of a proper plan and is of the view the country’s struggle in recent tournaments can change if the leadership of the FA are able to adhere to his words.
“With a long-term team building, I think we will have the rhythm and definitely, we will achieve something. So it’s all about team building, we have a long-term planning” he said.
He posits that, having a long term plan will benefit the Black Stars as he strongly believes there would be transition when it comes to national team football.
