John Paintsil

Former Black Stars defender, John Paintsil has warned former Hearts of Oak star, Bernard Dong Bortey to apologize for the defamatory statements labeled against him or will be exposed.

This comes after Bortey accused the former Fulham right-back of ruining his career during his trials in Isreal 15 years ago.

Bortey’s trial with the Israeli side ended after he was accused of theft and deported back to Ghana at a time when his career was peaking and has earlier in an interview with Joy FM maintained his innocence and accused the former West Ham right back of framing him.

Bortey, whose career took a dip after the theft allegation, was alleged to have stolen a watch and an unspecified amount of money, which he deposited in John Paintsil’s locker who was then a player for Israeli giants Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Apologize or you will be exposed- Paintsil warns Bortey

However, Paintsil has warned Bortey to confess to the world the actual crime he committed in Israel that led to his inability to secure a contract with Maccabi Tel Aviv.

“He came to Israel and I took him as a brother but 15 years after that, he still goes about destroying my image. He knows what he came to do in Israel that led to his stay being terminated by the club,” he told Atinka TV Sports Court.

“I give him up to Monday to come out and tell Ghanaians exactly the crime he committed or I will be forced to come and show to the world what he did back by evidence. It was not about a watch he stole.

“There is a damning secret that I have decided to keep for the sake of his integrity as a Ghanaian but if he has decided to blame me, I will spit it out if he doesn’t apologize by Monday 4th March,” he added.

Man City Sign Ruben Dias As Otamendi Joins Benfica

Published

Benfica announced the sale of Ruben Dias to Manchester City while confirming a deal for Nicolas Otamendi on Sunday.
Manchester City have signed centre-back Ruben Dias from Benfica in a transfer worth an initial £62million (€68m) with Nicolas Otamendi heading the opposite way in a separate deal.

Portugal international Dias, 23, has been a regular for Primeira Liga side Benfica since emerging through the academy ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

Dias has been linked with a number of big-name clubs around Europe, including Manchester United, but rivals City have now reached an agreement with Benfica.

The Portuguese side confirmed the news on their official website on Sunday, shortly before announcing a €15m (£13.67m) deal is in place for Otamendi, who must now undergo a medical.

City will pay an additional €3.6m (£2.1m) in add-ons for Dias should he trigger various performance-related clauses.

Dias captained Benfica in Saturday’s victory over Moreirense and hugged his team-mates and sporting director Rui Costa as he left the field at full-time.

“It was a special moment [with Costa] and I think everyone already knows why,” Dias said after the game. “Obviously, people leave their mark on you, and the club also.

“Without a doubt, it was very special for me. I am very happy. It was very important to consecrate this game with a goal, it was very special for me.”

Dias’ arrival ends City manager Pep Guardiola’s search for a right-sided centre-back, 16 months after long-serving Vincent Kompany departed the Etihad Stadium for Anderlecht.

Otamendi – who played for Benfica’s Portuguese rivals Porto between 2010 and 2014 – spent five years with City and started 31 games in all competitions last term.

The 32-year-old won two Premier League titles, four EFL Cup trophies, two Community Shields and the FA Cup during his time in Manchester, having arrived from Valencia in 2015.

Manchester United Submit Final £90m ‘Take-It-Or-Leave-It’ Offer For Jadon Sancho

Published

on

Manchester United will reportedly make one final offer to Borussia Dortmund for Jadon Sancho, a player they have pursued all summer but made no progress in talks.

So far, their only signing of the transfer window has been the £40m addition of Donny van de Beek, who scored on his Premier League debut last weekend.

Jadon Sancho has been Man United’s top target all summer but with less than two weeks before the transfer window shuts he’s still with the German club.

Dortmund imposed an August 10 deadline for Manchester United to strike a deal with them but none of that materialized and the Bundesliga club have made several statements insisting he would not be sold this summer.

Earlier this week, sporting director Sebastian Kehl asserted that the England international would not be going anywhere but a new report saysMan United will test Dortmund’s resolve, though, with a final ‘take-it-or-leave-it’ bid.

According to the Mirror UK, Man United will reportedly offer £75million up front with a further £15million in add-ons while United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will also tell Dortmund there will be no negotiating over the fee or structure of the deal.

Dortmund’s asking price is said to be around the £108m mark but the Red Devils continue to be optimistic of getting a deal done before the October 18 deadline.
