Former Fulham and West Ham defender, Ghana international, John Paintsil has disclosed that a colleague footballer ruined his marriage.
According to the 35-year-old, he regrets he was too opened and saw everyone as a brother, which lead to his marriage ruined by a colleague footballer.
“My advice to young players is that they should be very careful who they call a friend and who they allow into their homes,” he told GhOne TV.
“The mistake I made in life was that I was too open and regarded almost every male as a brother.
“No wonder someone I called a friend sent a picture to my ex-wife while we were out, which brought about a whole lot of issues,” he added.
The former Ghana international recalls that the last time he saw those he regarded his ‘real friends’ back in 2013, during his alleged assault case with his then-wife Richlove, which landed him for the first time in police custody.
