Ghana Black Stars Defender John Painstil has revealed his much publicized story which went viral in the Ghana Media some months ago back about him assaulting his wife in the eyes has caused his career.
The 30-year-old Ghana Black Stars defender, who is still in search of a new club after leaving the Israeli side Hapoel Tel Aviv this June, is so far unable to get a new deal since the incident.
According to Ghana Black Stars Defender Painstil who is the former Fulham player, the bad publicity which he got on the assault case of his wife has made him jobless.
He Said: “The story about me stabbing my wife which was not true has caused my job as a professional footballer, all the teams that wanted to sign me have refused due to this incident,” he said on Metro TV’s magazine show Morning Ride last Saturday.
“What happened was my wife took my passport to my neighbour’s house to keep it after we had some misunderstanding which is normal with married couples.
“So they kept my passport for two weeks whiles my club in Israel was waiting for me, the club called me to come and I told them I couldn’t find my passport so they went ahead to get a new player which when I finally got back there was no place for me,” Painstil added.
Even though John Painstil impressed on trial at English Championship club Millwall recently he was not handed a contract.
