Former Ghana and Wigan Athletic goalkeeper Richard Kingson has opened up on his ambition to one-day coach Spanish giants Barcelona, claiming that the Black Stars job is not over him.
Kingson, who is popularly known as ‘Olele’ during his playing days, has been very active in the game since hanging his boots in 2015.
Now 42, the former Ghana international has made some strides in the dugout, having guided Ghanaian third-tier side Emmanuel FC to clinch the inaugural Jordan Anagblah Cup in 2019.
Despite being named goalkeepers’ coach at Ghana Premier League giants Hearts of Oak, the former Galatasaray and Blackpool FC custodian is dreaming of leading the Black Stars to the promised land when given the opportunity.
He claimed that coaching the four-time Africa champions will not be a stern task for him as he holds even a greater ambition of leading Spanish and European giants Barcelona.
Kingson bragged that there is no pressure in handling the Ghana national team, describing it as coaching a Division One or Two side.
Kingson netted one goal in 90 caps for Ghana.
He scored that goal in a friendly – a late equaliser in a 1–1 draw against Tanzania.
Kingson played in two FIFA World Cup tournaments (2006 and 2010) for the Black Stars.
