Ghana midfielder Derek Mensah has terminated his contract with Tunisian outfit Club Africain.
The former Ghana Under-20 star has since returned home after he was reported to have suffered cardiac arrest during a training session with the club two weeks ago.
The ex-Tema Youth midfielder has no plans of returning to the north African country after revealing officials of the club lied about his health condition.
“It is not true I have a heart problem. I did not collapse as people were made to believe. It was a complete lie,” Mensah said to Accra-based Happy FM.
“I was having little dizziness because I did not eat the previous day. I informed the coach about it and he directed me to see the team’s doctor. Then suddenly they made a huge issue out of it by sending an ambulance to take me to the clinic.”
Mensah added: “I underwent as many as three tests and the doctor told me I had no heart problem. It was a well orchestrated plan. I did an MRI scan and the doctor did not see anything wrong with me.
“So I told them I wanted to return to Ghana to be further assessed by Ghanaian doctors. I am not going back to that country.
“As far as I’m concerned am done with the club. When the process of terminating my contract is finalised I will decide the club I will play for.”
