- The former Black Stars captain claims he is can still play football at the highest level
- He is convinced that the injuries that plagued his career are no more
- He however ruled any immediate return to the senior national football team
Former skipper of the Black Stars, Ghana’s senior national football team, John Mensah, has disclosed that he is not yet done with active football.
With a career plagued with a series of injuries, the thirty – four year old defender, often referred to as the rock of the Gibraltar, is convinced he can still contribute to football at the highest level.
This, he believes, is due to the fact that the injuries that kept him out of action most of the time are no more.
He added that he headed to Sweden after a brief spell at Lyon, but the injuries prevented him from actively playing there.
He then had no choice but to head home after his contract came to an end in November 2016.
Mensah indicated that he has had some special training, but is alright now. He nevertheless claims he isn’t in a hurry to return to the team now.
The former Sunderland centre-back also mentioned his intent to head outside the country, and explore his options there.
He has however ruled out any return to a local club in Ghana, such as Ashanti Gold, where he started his active football profession from.
The reason, according to him, was that his time at Ashanti Gold was not spent at the premier league level, so there isn’t any real connection with the club.
