William Mensah (born July 15, 1982 in Accra) is a Ghanaian footballer. He currently plays as a defender for Sime Darby F.C.

Career[edit]

Haras El Hodood[edit]

Mensah previously played for Haras El Hodood, whom he helped win the 2008–09 Egypt Cup.[1][2] He played well in Haras El Hodood's CAF Confederation Cup 2008 campaign.[3] Mensah was involved in an incident with Ahly's striker Flávio Amado in an Egyptian Premier League match on 11 May 2009.[4]

Lierse[edit]

27 May 2009 it was announced that he joined the Belgium club Lierse S.K. with a 2-year contract.[5] The team gained promotion to the Belgian First Division by the end of that season, but meantime the Ghanaian defender appeared only 8 times during that campaign. That was due to a serious shoulder injury.[6]

Wadi Degla[edit]

On 17 May 2010, Lierse announced that Mensah will join the Egyptian sister club, Wadi Degla, from the beginning of next season.[6] Mensah is returning to Egypt once more, but to help a newly promoted team to the Egyptian Premier League this time.

International career[edit]

Mensah was called into the Ghana national football team squad for a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Egypt in January 2009,[7] but did not appear in the match.
