Veteran Defender: John Mensah targets Black Stars return

The 34-year-old's last major involvement with the senior national soccer team came at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

Former Ghana captain, John Mensah, has disclosed that he is not yet done with active football and wants to return to the Black Stars.

The 34-year-old’s last major involvement with the senior national soccer team came at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, but an unstable club career in recent times has made him rather undesirable to the 2015 Afcon finalists.

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.

“I’ve not quit football; not now,” Mensah said on Agoo TV.

“After my time with Lyon, I went to Sweden but injuries did not allow me to play a match for them.

“I had to leave after the contract ended in November 2016, so I came back home.

“I have been undergoing some special training. I’m okay now but because I’ve been inactive, I’m not eager to return to the national team now.

“I cannot expect to be called while in this current state.

“I’m hoping to get back to club football abroad then we see what happens.”

Mensah has featured for Swiss outfit Bellizona, Italian teams Genoa, Chievo Verona, Modena and Cremonese, French sides Lyon and Rennes and English club Sunderland at club level.
