Posted by

Former Black Stars goalkeeper Richard Kingson has stated that he was better than all 3 goalkeepers who made the 23 man squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The goalkeeper after representing Ghana at the 2006 and 2010 World Cup was overlooked in 2014.

Then manager of the Black Stars Kwesi Appiah picked Fatau Mohammed, Adam Kwarasay and Stephen Adams as goalkeepers for the tournament.

Richard Kingson who was snubbed that year has revealed he was disappointed with the manager’s decision, he went on to say he was better than all three goalkeepers.

“Among the three goalkeepers selected for the 2014 world cup, I deserve more than them because I was the only Ghanaian goalkeeper who was playing active football.

“Low and behold the coach dropped me without any reason. Before the tournament, I helped Balikesirspor to qualify to the premier in Turkey. Sometimes I feel pains” he said.

Ghana that year recorded their worst World Cup campaign as they were knocked out in the group stage after picking just a point in 3 games.
