Ghanaian and Hapoel Tel Aviv player, John Pantsil, has reportedly stabbed his wife in the eye.
The defender, who last played a game on February 9 at the African Cup of Nations, stabbed her because she allegedly stole $20, 000 (N3 million) from him.
The Ghanaian police has confirmed they have Pantsil in their custody.
Pantsil was also a member of the 2010 World Cup team that represented Ghana in South Africa.
