Black Stars returnee goalkeeper, Richard Kingson, has hit back at critics and says he has resolved to prove them wrong.

The 35-year old goalie, who recently joined Cypriot side Doxa, has come under a lot of fire with notable sports personalities raising doubts about his age and abilities.

But in reaction to the criticism, 'Olele' Kingson has come out to say that he sees this as one of the numerous challenges he has to face and is only resolved to serve his nation.

An emotional Kingson granted an interview to Accra-based Asempa FM.

"I am training very hard. I know and believe that because of my training, I can do even better. I pray that God will give me the chance and people will bite their fingers.

"I know I have the ability. And I know I can do it. Whatever they are saying, I don't care. They can put my picture up and write any story about me, I don't care.

"I see everything in my life as a challenge, as something that I have to pass through. So whatever they aer saying I don't care, because I have to come and serve my nation."

Kingson, who is scheduled to touch down in Accra on Tuesday, played a game for his side Doxa against Apollon on Monday evening, but had to be subbed out in the 58th minute after picking a knock. His replacement, ex APOEL goalie Michalis Morphis, went on to concede two goals, the game ending 2-0 to Appolon.
