The former Hearts of Midlothian midfielder missed out on the FIFA World Cup, but it will be a dream comes true if he represent Ghana as coach of the team.

“In my coaching career, I want to graduate like the way I graduated through the various national teams," Kingston said, as reported by Ghanaweb.

"In my playing days, I played for the national under-15, 17, 20, the Olympic team and then the Black Stars."

"So that’s the same way I want to graduate through the ranks.”

"In the next two years, I see myself coaching one of the top four clubs in the country and then one of the national teams,” the 37-year-old said.

"I did a lot for the Black Stars, worked very hard for the team but I did not go to the World Cup, but I have the confidence that one day, I will win the World Cup for this country.

"I keep saying it that I will win it for Ghana and I believe I will do it one day."

Laryea Kingston excluded from the 2006 FIFA World Cup due to a suspension that would have made him unavailable for Ghana’s first two games at the Mundial.
