Former Black Stars winger Laryea Kingston has called on newly appointed Black Stars coach Chris Hughton to keep not less than 70% of the current squad.
Laryea believes that an excessive replacement of players will negatively affect the team’s progress.
The footballer-turned-coach reckons that the current squad has a lot of quality so what will be required is bringing in a few new faces to engender healthy competition for playing spots.
Laryea Kingston said he believes Chris Hughton will still maintain at least 70% of the players that went to the World Cup in the current squad.
He went on to add that if you look at the squad that we took to the World Cup, they are not bad at all, if you try to come in and change everybody on the ground, I don’t think you have a solid team.
He concluded that if you have 70% out and leave 30% it means you are now coming to build the foundation from the scratch and it will take longer.”
