Columbus Crew have released a ‘lovely’ video of how Jonathan Mensah’s wife, Kafui broke the news of his husband’s inclusion in the 2020 MLS Best XI to him and the rest of his teammates.
Mensah has been named to the 2020 MLS Best XI, a season-long recognition honoring the most outstanding performers in the top-flight over the 2020 campaign.
The 2020 MLS Best XI recognizes the League’s top 11 players in a common soccer formation as determined by media, MLS players and MLS club technical staff.
It is the first time the Ghana international has been named to the MLS Best XI.
Watch the video below;
Mensah becomes the 12th player in Crew SC history to be named to the League’s Best XI, as well as the fourth defender in Club history to earn the honor, joining Thomas Dooley (1997, 1998), Robin Frasier (2004) and Chad Marshall (2008, 2009).
Mensah – who recently signed a multy-year contract extension with Crews SC – joined Crew SC ahead of the 2017 MLS season and has since made 100 regular-season appearances (97 starts) for the Club, while scoring three goals and providing one assist.
He made his milestone 100th regular-season appearance on Decision Day in a 2-1 home victory against Atlanta United (November 8).
