It's the dream of every footballer to play injury free and give off their very best at any opportunity available to them but that cannot be said about Ghana Black Stars defender, Jonathan Mensah, who sadly recounted his tough playing days at Evian TG, France. 

According to dependable defender,who is well traveled across three continents and six clubs, anytime he recollects his days at France, they bring sad memories to mind.

"In France, I got two major injuries at Evian, as a footballer, injuries are a part of the game, for the first two seasons, it slowed my progress at the club and put me out of action for a couple of months” 

Jonathan moved past the injuries that blighted his first two seasons at the club by playing an additional three seasons before moving on to seek other challenges elsewhere. 

The 30-year old defender went on to make forty-nine (49) appearances for the club scoring two goals. 

Jonathan Mensah has played for other sides like Free State Stars (South Africa), Udinese(Italy), Anzhi (Russia) and captains MLS side, Colombus Crew in the USA.
