Accra - Former Fulham, West Ham and Leicester City defender John Paintsil was being held by police in Ghana on Friday after his wife was stabbed.

An Accra police spokesperson said they were called to a domestic incident in a suburb of the capital and Paintsil was arrested for allegedly chasing his wife into the garden of a neighbour and stabbing her.

The spokesperson said the woman is receiving hospital treatment for serious eye wounds after collapsing following the assault.

Paintsil was part of the Ghana 2006 and 2010 Soccer World Cup squads and the team that finished fourth this month behind Nigeria, Burkina Faso and Mali at the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
