Black Stars teammates Derek Boateng and John Painstil are embroiled in a legal row over a borrowed sum of $20000.
Boateng, has filed a suit in Accra alleging that he lent his colleague the sum during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and after spending the money on gambling, Painstil does not want to pay back the money.
Boateng wants his money back, plus interest, and the cost of legal fees borne by Painstil, in the suit he has filed.
The former right-back has now responded to the suit and he says he doesn’t owe Boatend any money and he’s ready to prove it in court.
“Well, you know that the matter is in court and when an issue is in court you don’t talk about it,” he said.
“To be honest I don’t owe Derek, I will leave it to the court to decide”.
Painstil also said he would give no more media statements till the case is settled.
