Charles Asampong Taylor has blamed Ghana's goalkeeper's trainer, Richard Kingston, for the Black Stars' poor showing at the Africa Cup of Nations.

According to the former Hearts and Kotoko player, Jojo Wollacot as Black Stars number one goalkeeper was a wrong choice, and Kingston needs to take responsibility for the Swindon shot-stopper's poor display.

Charles Taylor, who works as a pundit on Angel TV, was very critical of the goalkeeping department of the Black Stars.

“We should be disappointed in Olele because he is responsible for the training of majority of Ghanaian goalkeepers at his home,” he told Angel TV as quoted by Ghanaweb.

“He trained Ayi, Alawa, the Premier Division keepers as well as Fatawu, he is the one who trained them. So he wants to tell me none of the goalkeepers he trained was good to be in the Black Stars.”

Jojo Wollacot had a difficult Africa Cup of Nations, conceding five goals in three matches, more than he conceded in his first four games for the Black Stars.

Richard Kingston spotted the goalkeeper and made him number following the injury to Orlando Pirates goalie Richard Ofori.

Ghana failed to progress to the next stage of the Africa Cup of Nations after two defeats and a draw in Group C of the tournament.

The 25-year-old was selected to start the game ahead of regular second choice shot-stopper Richard Ati Zigi as Ghana defeated Zimbabwe 3-1 at the Cape Coast stadium.

In a post on Twitter, sighted by Sports Brief, the England-born goalie expressed delight in making his first appearance for the West African country.
