Laryea Kingston leaves role as Right to Dream Academy coach

According to a report by Joy Sports, the 41-year-old parted ways with the academy a month ago to pursue a bigger challenge.

Laryea, who played for the Black Stars from 2002 to 2010, acquired a UEFA B coaching license in February 2022.

The ex-Hearts of Oak star started his coaching badges when he hung his boots and was later appointed as the youth team coach at the Right to Dream Academy.


However, after two years as U18s coach, the former Heart of Midlothian winger has left the academy.

In June, Laryea expressed interest in taking charge of Ghana’s U17 national team, insisting he was ready and qualified enough.

With the fortunes of the Black Starlets dwindling in recent years, he believes he has the experience and know-how to turn things around.

“Anytime the FA will call me and they believe that I have what it takes to help the country, I’m ready to serve,” he said on the Friday Night Football show, as quoted by Starrfmonline.

“I’m just waiting for that call. It’s one of my ambition to serve my country. I can have a coaching job in Europe and any part of the world but if I don’t serve my country, it will be something that will not be complete in my life. At the moment I’m ready when it comes to juvenile football.”


He added: “I have ideas about how to develop players so if the nation gives me the opportunity to coach one of the youth national teams, I will be more than happy to bring all my experiences and the knowledge that I have acquired throughout my coaching career on board.”

Laryea was also linked with the Hearts of Oak job in 2021 following the departure of Kosta Papic, but it remains to be seen where he’ll go next.
