The former Swansea attacker added, “His performance on the pitch will make you understand what he is telling you. He had respect from everyone but mainly because he used to perform on the pitch when he wore the Black Stars jersey.

“I don’t remember one game where somebody can say that John Mensah did not play well. Since I was in the Black Stars, I don’t recall,” Ayew added.

To Dede, Mensah, who joined the senior national side in 2001, excelled in all the close to a hundred games he played in the national colors.
