Kingson accused of age-cheating


DR. Nyaho-Tamakloe bases his view largely on his experience as a medical doctor.

He is quoted as saying on Radio XYZ’s ‘Sports Chat’ programme on Wednesday: “He’s not 35. Look don’t tell me Kingson is 35, I’m a doctor, I’m a medical doctor. Kingson is not 35.

"Where are those who have been promoting this kind of rubbish? He’s not 35. Don’t tell me Kingson is 35. Does he look 35 to you? Don’t tell me Kingson is 35 years old, he’s not.

"The man is definitely 40 years plus… Kingson cannot be 35 years old. What are you telling me? Do you know when Kingson got into football? Do you want to tell me that he was 10, 12 years old when he was keeping the goals for Olympics?

He added that age-cheating "should not be encouraged at all".

Kingson, who is on the books of Cypriot club Doxa Katokopias, has been named in the Black Stars squad for a World Cup qualifier against Egypt in Kumasi on October 15.

The former Blackpool keeper received his previous national call-up two years ago.
