Ex-Ghana goalkeeper Richard ‘Olele’ Kingson has said he wanted to become a farmer following retirement but the decision to become a goalkeeper’s coach was just to prove his critics wrong.

Kingston, who featured for the Black Stars in the 2006 and 2010 FIFA World Cups says the idea of venturing into farming was on cards before he accepted a role to serve Kwesi Appiah’s backroom.

Speaking to Starr Sports, the former Wigan Athletic glovesman said his initial plan was to venture into farming and becoming a goalkeeper’s trainer was never part of his plans.

“This thing that I am doing was not part of my plans, but I want to prove some people wrong that I am not selfish,” Kingson revealed.

“…Because that is what they [critics] told me. I originally wanted to be a farmer after retiring and training goalkeepers was something that I never thought of,” the 39-year old specified.

Kingson is one of the backroom staff of coach Kwesi Appiah and the current goalkeeper’s trainer of the Black Stars.

Richard Kingston, who last played for Accra Great Olympics says, most of  his critics who forced him into retirement have now regretted their actions.

The former Blackpool goalkeeper is now the national team goalkeeper’s trainer and has vowed to get a better replacement for the country.
