The Ghana Football Association has taken the first step to convincing Turkey-based midfielder Bernard Mensah to rescind his decision to temporary quit International football.
The former Atletico Madrid player, announced his decision to temporarily retire from international football following an incident he says made him unhappy.
According to multiple media reports, the Kayserispor captain was benched during a FIFA international friendly game against Qatar by fired gaffer Charles Akonnor after an influential member of the squad asked the coach to bench him after the former Atletico Madrid midfielder confronted the player over his sloppy display.
After going close to a year without any contact from the Ghana FA, Mensah has told Accra-based Adom FM that he was recently phoned by Ghana FA’s Head of National Team.
“There has not been any official contact until Mr. Alex [Alex Asante] called me a couple of days ago. But we were unable to speak,” he mentioned.
Bernard Mensah has scored twice and assisted 3 times in 5 games for Kayserispor.
