John Mensah, a former Ghana international and ex-Black Stars captain, has shared insights into his life after retiring from professional football seven years ago. The celebrated defender now dedicates most of his time to church activities and spreading the word of God.

Mensah played a crucial role in Ghana's football history, notably during the Black Stars' impressive run to the quarterfinals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup and their second-place finish in the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations.

“I’m just keeping myself in the church all the time, so I'm always visiting the church because I'm not on the field anymore, so that's how I'm keeping myself cool,” Mensah said at the Ghana Football Awards ceremony.

He further elaborated on his new path, saying, “My church is a resurrection power, new-generation church. So I'm just worshiping with them. But I keep my faith in God Almighty, worship Him well, advise my people, and do evangelism to help others know God better."

The former Sunderland defender, who earned 86 caps and scored three goals for the national team, has found a fulfilling way to spend his retirement years by contributing to his community through faith and guidance.
