Following the announcement, Mensah wrote on Twitter: “Hello everyone I am fine, I feel good. Don’t worry. Thanks for your support.”
The midfielder made a return to the Black Stars after three years for the international friendly games against Mali and Qatar in Turkey, following an impressive start at Besiktas.
He featured in the 3-0 defeat against Mali but was an unused substitute in Ghana’s 5-1 victory over the Asian champions, Qatar.
Bernard Mensah joined the Turkish superhouse, Besiktas on loan in the summer transfer window from Kayserispor and has been in the thick of things for the club.
He has played in all four league games so far this season, scoring one goal.
