Mensah welcomes Gyan to Sunderland

John Mensah is delighted with the arrival at Sunderland of Ghana teammate Asamoah Gyan.

Mensah admits that he played a part in selling Sunderland to Gyan, who had other options this summer.

"He is a great player and a good person too," Mensah told The Journal.

"He is young and very talented - he will only get better with Sunderland. With the advice of Steve Bruce and Eric Black, he will get much, much better in England.

"Sunderland is a big club, I told him this, and I am delighted with him signing for us.

"I think he understands exactly what we are trying to do - we are a team, we are not about one individual superstar and that is how we will win games."
