Ex-Ghanaian star Derek Boateng claim against former international teammate John Paintsil over a $ 20,000 loan thrown out by the court, which blames the party to pay the defendant's legal fees and costs.
The court in Accra dismissed Boateng's claims that Paintsil borrowed money at a camp at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, deciding that the claim was frivolous.
The court, chaired by Jennifer Akua Tagoe, ruled that Boateng, the former AIK Stockholm Superttar, claims no merit.
Boateng claimed recovery of the amount and interest on the commercial banks rate from the day the defendant gained money until the final payment date.
Also, the former star of Fulham and Getafe asked Paintsili to cover his legal expenses and costs after a trial that revealed deep hatred and an enemy between two former friends.
Paintsil insisted that he should not pay a former international midfielder.
"I received a lawsuit on this matter, and I have discussed this matter with my lawyer to take the necessary legal measures," he told Kasapa FM Sports.
"All I can say is that I do not believe Derek.
"I do not have to pay him a penny, but since the matter is now in court, I talk less and leave it to the judiciary to decide whether I owe him or not."
According to the application, the plaintiff claimed that he was a pretty, soccer player and uses his career internationally and lives in London, while the defendant, John Paintsill, is also a footballer and is currently living in Ghana after a successful international career.
Plaintif said he (Boateng) and the defendant (Paintsil) were all Ghana Black Stars team players and were part of the Ghana contingent that played in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The plaintiff claimed that while the team was in South Africa, the defendant left her $ 20,000 (Boateng), and he (Paintsil) promised to pay the money at the camp, but later promised to pay when he returned to his club.
The applicant also pointed out that, since they had played in the national team, he was constantly detained by the defendant for his money thought, since they were friends, the defendant would have liked to pay money.
