WA All Stars co-owner John Paintsil has denied the purchase of the Club for $3million.
Paintsil together with some foreign investors were reported to have acquired the Club for the huge amount from former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi.
According to the former Black Stars defender the Club was acquired less than the speculated amount but refused to disclose the exact figure.
“3million? That some huge amount. We never purchased WA All Stars for such amount, it was less that that which am not going to disclose. I don’t want to disclose it but we bought it lets than that,” he said on GTV’s Sportlite.
Meanwhile the former Fulham, West Ham and Leicester City star has quashed reports claiming he forged a signature during the acquisition of the Club.
“Is never true, I heard that story and I even received a call that I have forged signatures and all that and I was like there was no way I would have done that,” he added.
“Sometimes you should let things go and allow peace to reign. I believe that sometimes when frustration get to people then people react. One must also understand that mistakes are part of human beings.
“It doesn’t matter who wrong you but you must also understand that is human being that stepped on your toes so I let go but at the end of the day people who understand it will be asking where is WA All Stars now. If I forged a signature I would have been in prison by now.”
The 38-year-old is currently serving as the head Coach of the Club which have now been moved to Accra.
