Ex-Fulham defender Paintsil narrates why he grabbed Yakubu Aiyegbeni’s balls

The Ghanaian full-back had a little altercation with the Nigerian forward during their playing days in the English top-flight

Former Fulham right-back John Paintsil has come out to explain the reason why he held ex-Nigeria international Yakubu Aiyegbeni by his crotch in a Premier League game with Everton.

The incident happened during a corner kick routine in which Paintsil was to mark Yakubu. In a bid to distract the Toffees forward before the ball was played, Paintsil took it upon himself to grab Yakubu’s balls.

The prolific striker was not pleased with it and confronted him. However, the incident was missed by the referee and the game continued without any fuss.
