Laryea Kingston ready for Hearts of Oak job

Former Black Stars winger Laryea Kingston says he is ready to honour an invitation from his former club, Accra Hearts of Oak for the coaching job.

Head Coach of the club, Henry Wellington is under pressure following a string of inconsistent results in the current campaign.

The Phobians fell to their third defeat of the season after losing to Elmina Sharks on Saturday in the Ghana Premier League match day 7.

Laryea Kingston, who is Coach of Al Rayan International School said after leading his team to success in the Private Schools Football Gala on Saturday he is ever ready to lead the rainbow club but called on fans to remain patient.

“Talking about Accra Hearts of Oak, they are now in the process of building a new team. Last season they had problems with their players not signing a new contracts so when you look at the team they are totally new so definitely it will take time for them to gel and then have their rhythm,” he said.

“They have had a slow start, let’s wait till the end of the first round then we will see what we can say about the team but trust me it has not been that bad, they have been winning, they have been losing and drawing so there is more room to improve.”

The 37-year-old was then quizzed whether he wants to coach the club, without hesitation Laryea said “Sure” he is waiting on an invitation by the team’s hierarchy.

“Sure, Sure, sure, sure,” he repeatedly said when asked if he wants to Coach the Phobians.

“Trust me, I’m ever ready to honour an invitation and I’m looking forward to Coaching Hearts of Oak. Hearts of Oak is in my blood,” he patted his chest.

Laryea Kingston played for Hearts between 2001 to 2003 and returned later in the 2012-13 season to play for the club again.
