Goalkeepers trainer for the Black Stars, Richard Kingson has leapt to the defense of goalkeeper Jojo Wollacott.
Jojo Wollacott who made his debut for the Black Stars in a World Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe in October 2021 was Ghana’s first choice goalkeeper at the 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) as the team endured its worst display in the history of the competition.
The Swindon goalkeeper finished the tournament as one of the worst goalkeepers, failing to keep a clean sheet, saving only 44% of the shots he faced and completing just 39% of his passes.
His performance has attracted backlash from Ghanaian football followers. However, Richard Kingson who according to erstwhile Black Stars Coach, Milovan Rajevac recommended Wollacott has leapt to his defense.
“Personally I know Jojo Wollacot is a very good goalkeeper and I can also throw a question to the public that they should watch the matches very well and they will realize he did not make any mistake in all the three goals he conceded,” Richard Kingson said on Precise Fm.
“The public also have their opinion and nothing to challenge about so we are just moving forward and hope for the best,” he added.
Jojo Wollacott has been in fine form for Swindon in recent weeks. The 25-year old has kept 2 clean sheets in his last 2 games and currently holds the highest save percentage (77.3%) in League Two.
