John Mensah has turned 39-years-old today, November 29, 2021, and has been receiving well wishes across social media, however, many social media users are doubting his age.
The Ghanaian professional footballer who last played as a defender for AFC United in the Swedish second-tier is one of the best defenders to come out of the West African country and played for Ghana between 2001 and 2012.
Football lovers have been celebrating the defender on social media, but some are doubting the former footballer’s age by saying they are wondering why Swedish professional footballer who plays as a striker for Serie A club AC Milan and the Sweden national team Zlatan Ibrahimović is older than John Mensah.
“John Mensah has been in his 30s since,” Sephie wrote on Twitter.
