Mensah terminates contract with Club Africain

Ghanaian midfielder Derek Mensah has terminated his contract with Tunisian outfit Club Africain.

The former Ghana Under-20 star has arrived in his native country after he was reported to have suffered cardiac arrest during a training session with the club two weeks ago.

The ex-Tema Youth midfielder has no plans of returning to the North African after revealing officials of the club lied about his health condition.

“It is not true I have a heart problem. I did not collapse as people were made to believe. It was a complete lie,” Mensah told Happy FM.

“I was having little dizziness because I did not eat the previous day. I informed the coach about it and he directed me to see the team’s doctor.

“Then suddenly they made a huge issue out of it by sending an ambulance to take me to the clinic.

“I underwent as many as three tests and the doctor told me I had no heart problem. It was a well orchestrated plan. I did an MR1 scan and the doctor did not see anything wrong with me.

“So I told them I wanted to return to Ghana to be further assessed by Ghanaian doctors. I am not going back to that country.

“As far as I’m concerned am done with the club. When the process of terminating my contract is finalized I will decide the club I will play for.”

Mensah was a member of Ghana’s U20 team which won silver at the 2013 African Youth Championship but dropped for the world in Turkey.
