Juventus star Kwadwo Asamoah is excited international teammate John Mensah has returned to active football.
Mensah, a centre-back, has signed for Slovakian side FC Nitra and playing in the top-flight after close to a year out.
His return could convince head coach Kwesi Appiah to include him in Ghanaâ€™s final squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals Brazil.
Asamoah, who played alongside Mensah at the 2010 finals in South Africa, says the defenderâ€™s availability is a boost for the Black Stars.
â€œI was very happy when I heard he has found a team and is playing again. Itâ€™s welcoming news for all of us Ghanaians especially the Black Stars,â€ Asamoah said.
â€œI want us to make a much bigger impact at the World Cup and so I want us to get the best compliments of our players and that is what I am happy about.â€
