Friends ruined my marriage – John Paintsil

Former Ghana International, John Paintsil says his biggest regret in life is allowing people he considered friends to get so close to him that they eventually destroyed his marriage.
He says, these days his best advice to up and coming footballers is simple, “beware of who you call your friend and who you allow into your home”.

Speaking on popular GH One TV programme ‘Cheers’, John who played in two FIFA World Cups said, he has become a bit skeptical of friends these days because of the bitter experience he suffered at the hands of some close pals.

“My advice to the young players is that they should be very careful who they call a friend and who they allow into their homes. The mistake I made was that I was very open and regarded most people as brothers but someone I call a friend sent a picture to my ex-wife while we were out and that started a whole lot of issues.”

It will be recalled that in February, 2013 John Paintsil was held in Police custody for assaulting his wife and beating a neighbor, who tried to save the situation.

The ex-wife, Richlove Paintsil was reported to have jumped the Trasacco wall to her neighbour, ostensibly to escape the assault of the husband but Paintsil was alleged to have followed into the neighbour’s house and handed a few slaps to the man holding the wife. It was reported that the wife went unconscious after sustaining serious injuries to her eye.

However, Richlove denied being stabbed and after a period of legal battle between the state and Paintsil, the case was cancelled.

FIFA bans Kwesi Nyantakyi for life

Published

Former Ghana FA President, Kwesi Nyantakyi has been banned for life by world football governing body FIFA.

According to FIFA, Nyantakyi is banned from taking part in all football-related activities and the ban takes effect immediately.

The life ban follows extensive investigations by FIFA’s Adjudicatory Chamber of the Independent Ethics Committee into the conduct of Mr Nyantakyi who was captured in an explosive expose by Ghanaian investigator Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

This brings to a sad the glittering career of the man considered as the most successful GFA President in the history of Ghana football.

Nyantakyi reigned as GFA President for 13 years and rose through the ranks to become the Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

He was initially suspended on 8 June for 90 days by the adjudicatory chamber of Fifa’s independent Ethics Committee. The ban was later extended for an additional 45 days on September 6.

What’s Nyantakyi’s crime

He was filmed in an undercover investigation by controversial Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas taking $65,000 (£48,000) from an undercover reporter pretending to be a businessman.

Soon after the ban on 8 June Nyantakyi resigned from the posts he had held with football’s world governing body, Fifa, and the Confederation of African Football (Caf).

He left his role on the Fifa Council and stepped aside from his roles with Caf including as 1st vice-president, the most senior figure at the confederation after its president, Ahmad.

As well as the Fifa suspension Nyantakyi also resigned as president of the GFA on 8 June following an executive committee meeting.
