Jonathan Mensah wants to captain Black Stars

Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah has set an audacious target of captaining the Black Stars in future.

The 24-year-old, who plays for French side Evian, was a member Ghana’s disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign in Brazil.

The strong centre-back has been an integral member of the Black Stars squad over the last couple of years and expected to play a key role for the French side this season.

In answering a question from his fans on Twitter, the former Udinese and Granada defender, says it would be an honour to captain the African giants in future.

[email protected]: @jomens25 would u like to be captain of the national side in the near future? #Askjomens” Who wouldn't? It would be an honour

Mensah's quality has never been in doubt but it's not clear if he has leadership qualities.

Excellent player in the air, he will play a crucial role for the Black Stars ahead of the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

    I know Mumbi will come here to troll because he hates Ghanaians. When he comes let him anwser this: 10 FACT ABOUT ZAMBIANS 1. All male kids do not circumsize and that makes them "koti boto" in our Ghanaian language. 2. They eat some food popularly known as "shima" and they eat it with cassava leaves. In Ghana they will known as "aponkye" 3. They drink so much so that, a lot of Zambians here in the USA have had their driving liscense suspended, revoked and have done some jail terms. "We call them "sagy3 am" 4. Most of the men have bad body odour and I guess is because of the penis not been circumsized. 5 They like marrying young women for wives, for example, you will see a 56yr old man with a 22 yr old wife. You can guess what these young ladies do behind these old drunkards with other men especially guys from west Africa. 6. Zambian men eat with two hands like baboons and have no table manners when they have their food. They can disgrace you very quick as an African. 7 They eat salt and sugar like there is no tomorrow. Every food they eat must either be sprinkled with salt or sugar. It is because Zambia is a landlocked country with no shores or coastal harbors. Salt and sugar is their white gold. 8.Most Zambian women would prefer to date a guy or marry a man from west Africa because they call them "trophy" when they get one. It means the west African men are more smart, educated and very civilized and we treat them better than their own. 9. "Shimanga" is a name for a girl and " mulumbi and lingashi " are names for boys. These are just examples. Very shinny names. 10. South Africa is "Zambian's America" they struggle to go to South Africa just like the west struggle to go to America. However, the South Africans even hate them so bad and more often, Zambians will tell you they are from "South Africa" . They are shy to say they are Zambians. Next week will about about our brother next door...
