Landlords Jeff and Dawn Grant claimed Carroll damaged antique furniture and fittings, removed plates and TVs from the house, and left it in such a state that it needed more than £48,000 of repairs and cleaning.
They claimed the player missed £68,000 of rental payments on the £2m mansion in Hall Road East, Blundellsands to the north of Liverpool.
Court papers issued in 2013 on London-based solicitors acting for the player alleged that Carroll took away £75,000 of furniture and expensive stereo and CCTV systems.
Among the areas of the mansion worst affected were said to be the marble-tiled dining room, which leads on to the pool complex and Jacuzzi, and which contained a considerable amount of antique furniture. Items such as a barbecue, garden lounger and an air hockey table were also said to be damaged. Court papers claim chairs needed to be re-upholstered and mirrors replaced, and smashed glass was left in the swimming pool area.
Carroll denied owing the Grants any money and claimed he placed a number of items in storage in a bid to protect the £15,000 deposit he paid on moving in to the house.
