Hearts of Oak’s problems are not spiritual- Laryea Kingston

Former Black Stars winger, Laryea Kingston says the inconsistent run of Accra Hearts of Oak in the First Capital Plus premier league is not spiritual as some have been speculating.

Hearts of Oak have had a Topsy-turvy run in the league and are currently occupying the 12th position on the league log, with only 11 points from 9 league games.
Laryea in an interview with Sportscrusader.com, said, Hearts shouldn’t go looking for spiritual solutions to the poor run.

“It is worry to see Hearts of Oak going through difficulties at the moment but I believe the storm will pass. It is not spiritual as some wants us to believe. I don’t buy those spiritual explanations people give. All the greatest clubs in the world have once upon the time gone through crisis and so it is not strange that Hearts are facing challenges. I think they will overcome it soon”.

Meanwhile, Laryea maintains that he is not yet retired as a professional footballer but will not rule out helping Hearts of Oak in capacity different from what he is usually known for.
“I am footballer and I haven’t retired yet but if Hearts of Oak need me in as an assistant coach I will consider it. I think my experience will help the young once and motivate them.”

Kingston is a former player of Hearts of Oak and enjoyed a productive spell with the Phobians before his sojourn to Europe.

He has a soft spot for Hearts and even returned to the club in 2011 to revive his then ailing career in Scotland.

His second spell however ended in disaster as he was constantly reported to be in disagreement with then head coach of the club David Duncan.

Laryea left Hearts again in 2012 and even though his second spell was not pleasant, he remains loyal to the club.

Currently, Laryea’s 16 year old son, Jacob Kingson plays for the Phobians even though he is yet to enjoy first team action, insiders at the club believe Jacob has what it takes to succeed at the top level.
