I wanted to retire and go into farming – Richard Kingson

Ex-Ghana international Richard Kingson has said he decided to be a goalkeeper’s trainer just to prove his critics wrong.

Speaking to Starr Sports, the former Birmingham City goalie said his initial plan was to venture into farming and becoming a goalkeeper’s trainer was never part of his plans.

“This thing that I am doing was not part of my plans, but I want to prove some people wrong that I am not selfish,” Kingson revealed.

“…Because that is what they [critics] told me. I originally wanted to be a farmer after retiring and training goalkeepers was something that I never thought of,” the 39-year old specified.

Kingson is one of the backroom staff of coach Kwesi Appiah and the current goalkeeper’s trainer of the Black Stars.
