Two years after hanging up his boots, the 36-year-old looks back on some special moments.
“It was two clubs – Hapoel Tel Aviv and Fulham, these were the clubs that made me feel at home," Paintsil told Ghanasoccernet.
"The fans, coaches and all my team mates were very supportive and I played more games with these clubs.
"I had an amazing stay with these two clubs and I still have a good relationship with them, including all the clubs I played for.
“With Fulham, we played in the Uefa Cup final which was good for me. I did well during my playing days and also played in the Champions League with Hapoel Tel Aviv."
Paintsil initially joined Polish side Widzew Lodz when he left Ghana, before later moving to Israeli team Maccabi Tel Aviv.
