Laryea Kingston wants footballers to invest in Football Administration

Former Ghana player, Laryea Kingston, says footballers are not guaranteed to become top managers and they must learn football administration.

Most football players to venture into coaching after retirement with a few showing interest in the administrative running of the game.

Amd for Laryea, being a top player does not produce an assurance to be a successful coach.

The former Hearts player asserts that footballers must go through the mill, gain experience and success will follow.

“When you are managing a football club, there are so many areas that former players can go into.

“But sometimes, you should have that competency of the job you are expecting someone to give you,” the Black Starlets assistant coach told Joy FM.

“You should be competent enough. Most former players think ‘because I have played football to the highest level I can be a coach.

“[No] You have to go through education to know where you are. Playing football is different.”

In addressing these concerns, the GFA recently launched the Ghana Football School.

The new initiative is a partnership between the FA and some tertiary institutions to provide individuals with the requisite education needed in the football ecosystem.
