Ghanaian soccer player sued by D.C. landlord for missing rent, trashing the place

Samuel Inkoom’s former landlord is suing the Ghanaian midfielder for unpaid rent and wrecking the place. Total being sought: just over $65,000.

D.C. United signed the two-time World Cup vet in September, and Inkoom rented a place in Arlington, Va. He made five appearances total (three in the CONCACAF Champions League) before his rights were traded to the Houston Dynamo in December.

At some point, Inkoom bailed on his Arlington place. According to his landlord, the 25-year-old hasn’t paid rent since February 2015. He apparently owes $3,795 a month for the three-year-old, three-level house through October.

In February, after Inkoom missed rent and didn’t answer calls, the landlord’s real estate agent went to scope it out. The landlord claims there was trash strewn everywhere, and that a TV mounted on the wall had punctured a sewer line.

“It smells horrible,” the landlord, Curtis Paul Willette, said.

God is great💪👌👍
