Former Ghana international, Nii Odartey Lamptey has implored Ghanaian footballers to go for a DNA test if they have doubts about their children.

Odartey, 45, who was part of Ghana’s squad at the 1992 Olympics has been a strong advocate for such practice due to his personal experience.

In November 2013, the former Aston Villa midfielder made the headlines after a DNA proved that all three children he had fathered for 21 years were not his biological kids.

Speaking to Kasapa FM, Odartey claimed that there are lots of footballers who are taking care of people’s children and scientific confirmation or otherwise at the early stage will do a lot of good.

“I will encourage Ghanaian players to do DNA tests of their kids when they feel suspicious in their marriages or relationships than to wait till the latter which might cause a lot of havoc,” he said.

“Marrying early even ruined my career. I could have played for long if I had taken my time before getting married,” Odartey added.

Odartey Lamptey has recovered from a bitter divorce with his first wife and has since remarried.

The former PSV ace is now blessed with two girls and a boy.
