Former Black Stars Player Laryea Kingston has blamed the Ghana Football Association for his exclusion from the squad at the 2006 World Cup.

Laryea has described his entire playing career as a success but says his failure to play at the World Cup is a dent on his career.

During the 2006 Africa Cup of Nation’s in Egypt, Kingston was handed a four-game ban after an incident with Senegal’s Habib Beye.

The former Hearts of Oak, Terek Grozny and Locomotive Moscow player who played all the qualifying games for the 2006 World cup was overlooked due to the ban and he believes the management of the FA at the time could have done something to overturn that decision.

“That time was our first qualification to the World Cup and you know it was a huge platform so most Ghanaians and everyone never believed that we could sail through from the group so they felt there was no need to send me there because of the ban.

“But it happened that we were able to progress from our group but for me that unfortunate incident I think the management should have prevented it…it’s something that most of the management at that time will regret,” he told Starr Sports.
