Jonathan Mensah has qualities to be president of Ghana - Columbus Crew coach

Jonathan Mensah, is a Ghanaian professional footballer who plays as a defender for and captains MLS club Columbus Crew SC.

Lead trainer of Columbus Crew, Caleb Porter says Jonathan Mensah has the imperative characteristics to become leader of Ghana. Mensah has ostensibly been the Yellow and Black outfit's best part in the progressing Major League Soccer season. 


The 30-year-old watchman exhibited his significance to the group indeed during their 1-0 triumph against New England Revolution in the Eastern Conference last. Brazilian midfielder José Artur de Lima's 59th-minute objective was sufficient for Columbus to win the Eastern Conference last at Mapfre Stadium, moving into the MLS Cup unexpectedly since 2015. 


Lucas Zelarayan sent in a cross to the far post that was laid back off over the crate by Mensah, permitting Artur to coolly opening home a first-time finish. The success denoted the first run through Columbus have won a MLS Cup end of the season games coordinate over New England, and it went ahead their eighth endeavor. 


"I believe he's an incredible individual, perhaps the best individual you'll actually meet, simply enormous heart, truly hero, truly extraordinary pioneer," Porter said. 


"He hasn't seen his better half in 10 months and I was unable to envision being 10 months without my significant other. The reality he returns home alone consistently and comes to preparing and rolls the sleeves up, he's simply mind boggling. I joke with him he will be the leader of Ghana one day. He has that kind of value." 


The Columbus Crew chief made the group of the year after an extraordinary mission with the Gold and Blacks, driving them to the MLS end of the season games. Mensah played the entire season, turning into the principal player to be named to the MLS Best XI under Caleb Porter.
