Former Ghana international footballer, Nii Odartey Lamptey has revealed that he has no regrets over his marriage to his ex-wife Gloria Lamptey.
The 41-year-old is currently embroiled in a divorce case with Gloria after DNA tests allegedly uncovered the fact that the couple’s three children were not indeed fathered by the former World’s best juvenile player after 20 years of marriage.
Speaking to host of Starr Chat, Bola Ray Wednesday, the former Anderlecht player said he is still optimistic about life and is looking forward to the outcome of the court case.
“No, I don’t regret, I’m alive Bola and that is all that matters,” Odartey Lamptey said.
Odartey Lamptey, however, revealed that he now has a baby girl and is expecting his second child since his previous marriage collapsed.
Nii Odartey Lamptey (born 10 December 1974) is a former Ghanaian professional footballer.
During his career, he played as a striker from 1990 until 2008 notably for Aston Villa, PSV Eindhoven, Coventry City and the Black Stars.
He also played for Anderlecht, Venezia, Unión Santa Fe, Ankaragücü, Asante Kotoko among others. Nii Lamptey was born in Tema, but grew up in the two biggest Ghanaian cities, Accra and Kumasi. He is known foremost for his erratic career, in which he became a superstar as a teenager.
Lamptey first began to attract global attention in 1991 when he led Ghana to win the 1991 FIFA U-17 World Championship with the Black Starlets after playing in the 1989 version as a 15 year old. He won the FIFA Best Player of the tournament – the Golden Ball award in a competition that also included Argentina's Juan Sebastian Verón and Marcelo Gallardo and Italy's Alessandro del Piero.
He was subsequently touted as the next Pelé; by Pelé himself. He scored four goals in that tournament. The adidas Golden Ball could only go to one of the members of the victorious Ghanaian side, and so it was, with Lamptey taking home a very special souvenir from his Italian sojourn.
