Ghana defender Inkoom sued by former American landlord

The 25-year-old free agent has been dragged to court for alleged unpaid rent in the United States of America

Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom has been taken to court by his former landlord in the United States of America for unpaid rent and allegedly wrecking the apartment, according to The Washington Post.

The former Asante Kotoko player joined Major League Soccer side D.C. United in Washington, D.C., midway last season after an unsuccessful spell at Greek club Platanias.

He rented an apartment in Arlington, Texas for $3,795 per month from Curtis Paul Willette, who is now seeking damages of $65,000.

According to documents filed in Arlington Circuit Court on Tuesday, Willette claimed Inkoom owes $11,685 in unpaid rent and late fees from February to April 2015.

The estimated cost to repair damage to the property plus miscellaneous costs associated with the abandonment is $37,032.01, according to the documents.

At D.C. United, Inkoom earned $103,875 per season. He played two MLS matches and appeared in three Concacaf Champions League games with the club before embarking on a futile move to Houston Dynamos last December. He is currently a free agent.

Inkoom was part of the Ghana squad that won the 2009 World Youth Championship in Egypt. He also represented the West African nation at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa but was not selected for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil despite being named in the provisional squad.
