Columbus Crew SC signs Jonathan Mensah to multi-year contract extension

Ghanaian international Jonathan Mensah has signed a multi-year contract extension with MLS side Columbus Crew.

The experienced defender was handed the club’s captain armband ahead of the 2020 campaign and helped them qualify to the play-offs and the quarter finals of the ‘MLS is Back tournament’.

General Manager of Columbus Crew Tim Bezbatchenko explained that Jonathan Mensah’s experience as a player makes him an influential figure in the dressing room.

“We are thrilled to announce that Jonathan has signed a multi-year contract extension with the club.

“In addition to having a ‘Defender of the Year’ award-worthy season in 2020 and consistently being one of the top defenders in MLS, Jonathan is someone who leads by example and serves as a role model to the younger players. He has earned the respect of teammates, coaches and the Central Ohio community alike for his efforts on and off the field and we are delighted that he has committed to remain in Columbus,” Tim Bezbatchenko said.

Mensah joined Crew SC on January 3, 2017 and went on to make 26 regular-season appearances (25 starts) while scoring two goals and providing one assist for the Crew in his first season with the Club.
