In a writ, the former Rayo Vallecano forward is demanding the $20,000 plus interest at commercial bank rate from the date the defendant collected the money till date of final payment.

Boateng is also asking the defendant to cover his legal fees and cost.

But speaking to Kasapa FM, Paintsil said, “I have received summons from court over the said issue and I have discussed the matter with my lawyer to take the necessary legal actions.

“All I can say is that I don’t owe Derek.”

“I don’t owe him a penny, but since the matter is now in court I will less talk about and leave it to the judiciary to decide whether I owe him or not,” he added.
