The Black Stars guardsman has been accused of inviting prostitutes to the Ghana camp during the Afcon and has vowed to clear his name in court
Ghana defender John Paintsil has threatened to drag a Kumasi-based football enthusiast and social commentator Appiah Kofi popularly known as Appiah Stadium to court for making false claims against him.
Appiah alleged that the veteran was responsible for bringing women to the Black Stars camp to have sexual intercourse with them and this culminated in the team’s poor output at the Afcon.
These allegations did not go down well with Paintsil who also spoke on the same network – Happy FM - and vowed to take legal action against Appiah Stadium.
“I don't know where these stories are coming from and I’m disgusted by the false claims being made against me by Appiah stadium,” an incensed Paintsil fumed.
“He came to me demanding for money for making JP T-shirts but I refused to pay because I had not authorised him to do so.
“Since that time he has harboured hatred for me and making all sorts of useless allegations against me.”
“My image has been battered and I will take him on. It is the same thing that he did against Asamoah Gyan which resulted in a near fisticuff at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi some time back,” the Hapoel Tel Aviv rearguard recalled.
“The allegations are false, unfounded, wicked and malicious and I will do whatever is necessary to redeem my bruised image.”
