In a news release, Kingston apologized to the Executive Council and Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku for his mistakes.

Following the Black Starlets’ elimination from the WAFU B U-17 Championship semifinal match against Burkina Faso, which ended their chances of making it to the U-17 Africa Cup of Nations, the decision was made to stand down. Shortly after, Kingston, clearly disappointed, announced his resignation.

The Ghana Football Association disclosed that Kingston conducted himself inappropriately as he declined to attend a team meeting and disembarked from the team bus en route to the hotel.

As assistant coaches prepare to lead the team in the third-place playoff against Nigeria, Kingston, just hours before kickoff, reflected on his actions and issued a heartfelt apology.

“I apologise unreservedly for our failure to pay back the trust, love and support we have graciously received from Ghanaians,” Kingston stated.

“Concerning any other issue about my personal conduct, with suggestions that I abandoned the team following last Saturday’s semi-final defeat to Burkina Faso, I state unmistakably, that my announcement during the post-match press conference was without ambiguity that my role as coach with the team ends after the tournament.”

He continued, “To the President and the Exco, I also want to unreservedly and sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding, inconvenience and embarrassment my decision to announce my resignation last Saturday caused.”

“After careful consideration, I could have handled things better and this will be a guiding experience for me going forward,” Kingston added. “I love my nation, I served my nation as a player, and I have been serving my nation as a coach.”

Expressing gratitude for the opportunity given by the GFA and the support of Ghanaians, Kingston affirmed the team’s commitment to finishing the tournament strongly by aiming to defeat Nigeria and secure the bronze medal.
