Black Stars forward Joseph Paintsil has rendered an apology to his KRC Genk teammates, the fans and everyone for his red card on Thursday’s Europa League game against Olympiacos.

The Belgian-based side were ousted from the competition following a 1-1 draw in front of the raucous home crowd at Cegeka Arena to bring the final scoreline to 2-1 on aggregate in favor of the Visiting side.

The former Tema Youth forward had scored the game opener to cancel out Olympiacos’ first leg lead only for him to have been issued a red card for an avoidable mistake.
