Former Tema Youth star, Joseph Painstil, says he could have scored more goals if he completed a full season in the Ghana Premier League.
The 24-year-old scored 11 goals in the 2016/17 Ghana Premier League season before going on loan to Hungarian side Ferencvaros.
Speaking in an interview on Happy Sports, the former RedBullAcademy player was confident he would have scored more goals.
“I never expected it but I was happy to have scored that number of goals. I didn’t finish the season but I could have won the goal king if I stayed for the full season”, he told Odiasempa Kwame Oware.
Joseph Paintsil after his loan spell at Ferencvaros, joined Genk on a four-year deal from Ghanaian side Tema Youth.
The Belgium side paid three million euros to sign the talented winger from Tema Youth.
Painstil currently holds the record as the most expensive player signed from the Ghanaian transfer market by a foreign club.
In the just-ended season in the Belgium top-flight league, he made 28 appearances and scored three goals with two assists.
He was part of the Black Stars team that qualified for the 2022 World Cup.
