Kingson served in the role for two years during coach Kwasi Appiah’s second tenure as Black Stars coach.
Richard Kingson returns to Black Stars as goalkeepers trainer
Ex-Ghana goalkeeper Richard ‘Olele’ Kingson has been reappointed as the goalkeepers’ trainer of the national team.
However, the 43-year-old left his position following Ghana’s underwhelming performance at the 2019 AFCON, after which the whole technical team was disbanded.
The former Blackpool and Wigan Athletic shot-stopper now returns, having recently had a stint with Ghana Premier League side Accra Great Olympics.
A statement from the Ghana Football Association said: “The Ghana Football Association has appointed former International Richard Kingston as Goalkeepers trainer of the Black Stars
“The 43-year old replaces Najawu Issah who has been reassigned to the Black Stars B.”
The GFA added: “He is expected to bring his rich vein of experience to bear in upcoming International competitions.”
Kingson was capped 90 times by Ghana and was the Black Stars’ first-choice goalkeeper at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
