In an exclusive interview with Citi Sports, Jerome Otchere described the actions of both parties as unprofessional.

He highlighted Kingston’s temperament and criticized the GFA’s response as an emotional reaction, suggesting that neither side handled the situation appropriately.

Ghana’s Black Starlets will not participate in next year’s AFCON after losing again to Burkina Faso in the semi-finals of the WAFU Zone B U17 AFCON on Saturday.

For the second time, the Black Starlets have been defeated by Burkina Faso in the semi-finals of the WAFU Zone B U17 Qualifiers.

The previous encounter also ended in a 1-0 loss, held at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

Following this recent defeat, tensions have escalated between Laryea Kingston and the Ghana Football Association.

The Association issued a statement on Sunday morning, condemning Laryea Kingston’s conduct as unprofessional.

The Black Starlets held their recovery training session on Sunday morning at the Accra Sports Stadium led by First Team Assistant Coach Nana Agyemang.

The Black Starlets will play Nigeria in the 3rd place play-offs on Tuesday, May 28, 2024, at the University of Ghana, Legon Stadium.
