Laryea Kingston expects Hearts to succeed under Duncan

Published on: 16 November 2012

Hearts midfielder Laryea Kingston says new coach David Duncan is the right man for the job and that the club seems much more settled under his short stewardship.

The former Ashantigold trainer began official duties  this week after signing a three-year deal with the capital-based side.

Expectations are are unsurprisingly high at a club with a proud history of success but certain sections of fans are skeptical about their chances to reclaiming the title from rivals Asante Kotoko.

But the 31-year-old, who clashed with dismissed CK Akunnor, is pleased with the appointment of Duncan and is adamant the 45-year-old can transform Hearts into a club capable of challenging for honours once again.

“Duncan is a very good coach. I really enjoyed his first training session and with support I think he can take the club far,” Kingston said

“Former coach CK Akunnor is also a very good coach and there is not much difference between him and David Duncan in terms of their qualities.

“I have not trained under him before. I have only heard lots of things about him but believe he has brought some new spirit into the team.

“I have no doubt in my mind he will succeed at this great club.”

Hearts will travel to Kumasi to face Kotoko in a titanic duel on Sunday November 18.
