Former Ghana International John Paintsil says he still has some years in him to play football at a higher level.


The ex-Black Stars right-back has not played active football since 2014 when he last played for South African side Maritzburg United.

“I still have 2 or 3 years football in me. I could have played in the Ghana League but the past experiences of some returnees shackled that idea,” he spoke to Atinka FM.

“Some Ghanaian fans think we come back to play here because life is failing us. They don’t respect us and it’s not fair”

He was capped 89 times by the Black Stars of Ghana.
