Former Ghana international footballer, Laryea Kingston, has for the first time spoken about his biggest regret in his career.
According to the Ghanaian midfielder, not being able to represent Ghana in any of the World Cup competitions is one of his biggest regrets in his career.
In an interview on Joy FM and monitored by YEN.com.gh, Laryea Kingston indicated that anytime he thinks about it, his heart aches a lot.
Laryea Kingston played a key role in getting Ghana to qualify for its first World Cup in 2006.
But Ghana’s then-coach, Ratomir Dujkovic, excluded him from the team for Ghana’s first appearance at the World Cup.
Though his exclusion raised a lot of comments, the list remained unchanged.
"It was very difficult, even to date,” he told Joy FM.When I think back, it is still very difficult. When you ask me today if I am happy with my career? I will say yes apart from the World Cup appearance. Every player’s dream is to be at the World Cup," Laryea Kingston said.
“If you sit back, watch the World Cup and observe the way the players were giving their all and playing with enthusiasm and thinking at the same time that I couldn’t play let alone have a taste of it. It really hurts,” he said.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that veteran Ghanaian actress Selassie Ibrahim has shown in a new photo that age is just a number and growing old is a personal decision.
Selassie Ibrahim hardly shares photos on social media but when she does, a lot of her fans get very excited.
In a photo sighted by YEN.com.gh, Selassie Ibrahim is seen rocking her beautiful red dress as she flaunted her curvy body.
