AFTER weeks of muscle-flexing, inspirational midfielder of Accra Hearts of Oak Laryea Kingston, has decided to render an unqualified apology to the technical team and playing body of the club.
The decision by the 31-year-old comes as a massive boost for the Phobians who are struggling after three successive defeats in the league.
Laryea is serving an imprecise ban after clashing with head trainer C.K Akunnor at the team’s pre-season camping base in Takoradi, some three weeks back.
He bluntly refused to apologise to the coach when asked to do so by management of the club, triggering the indefinite suspension.
That eruption deepened the already hot-blooded tension that exited between the player, club as well as Coach Akunnor – in the wake of his continuous suspension.
Heartily, the former Heart of Midlothian and Vitesse Arheim has now demonstrated remorse – that act of contrition Laryea showed only last mid-week when he walked enthusiastically to the Hearts secretariat – clutching a letter of apology.
However, a according to Times Sports source, “the letter of apology lacks certain conditions, so we asked him to go and address those grey areas and bring it back.”
As of the time of going to filing this story at the weekend, the 31-year-old Laryea was yet to return with the ‘acceptable’ letter of apology’ but the source was all-too certain that “he will do the right thing and apologise properly.”
Laryea, who is also an ex-player of former elite side Accra Great Olympics, returned to Hearts after terminating his contract with Israeli side Hapoel Be’er Sheva.
