Jonathan Mensah Close To Regaining Full Fitness
Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah is in the final stage of his rehabilitation of a thigh injury which has sidelined him for six months. A similar injury sidelined him for up to five weeks in late 2011 before joining Ghana’s squad for 2012 Nations Cup finals in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
The centre-back was restricted to three appearances for French Ligue 1 side Evian Thonon-Gaillard last season because of the injury. He is yet to join the rest of the Evian squad for pre-season and missed last Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Marseille. Mensah moved from Granada last summer to Evian TG who were promoted to the French top-flight side last season.
