Besiktas midfielder Bernard Mensah has revealed that he has decided to quit international football.

The Turkish-based midfielder made this announcement on Sunday, November 8 on his Social media account.

Mensah who recently joined Besiktas says the decision to take a break from the Black Stars comes as a result of he wanting to concentrate on club football for the time being.

A statement on his Twitter read: ''I have decided to take a break from the national team until further notice .. I want to concentrate on my career for now .. thanks to all Ghanaians for their support.''

On 8 June 2015, Mensah made his debut for Ghana in a match against Togo, scoring the only goal of the game.
