Former Ghana Premier League goal king Eric Bekoe has picked Columbus Crew captain Jonathan Mensah as the most difficult defender he played against in the Ghana Premier League.

Bekoe faced Mensah, who was then an Ashantigold defender in the Ghana Premier League in the 2007/08 season, the season he won the Golden Boot.

The former Asante Kotoko striker was in top form scoring against any team he came across but had a tough time against the FIFA U-20 World Cup winner.

"Jonathan Mensah is the best defender I played against in the Ghana Premier League," he told Sikka Sports.

Eric Bekoe came across many top defenders, and he is always remember for the hell he went through in a game against Hearts of Oak, where he was 'manhandled' by Daniel Coleman.

The 33-year old had an excellent season in the 2007/08 season, going to win the Ghana Premier League and the FA Cup under coach Bashiru Hayford.
