Ghana and Columbus Crew defender Jonathan Mensah has commended his compatriot Lalas Abubakar after being crowned the Colorado Springs defender of the year.
The 22-year-old, who is currently on loan from Columbus Crew has been an impressive figure for the side, putting up incredible performances as Colorado Spring finished 9th on the MLS table.
The University of Ghana and University of Dayton graduate was crowed the Colorado Springs Defender of the Year in an award ceremony which happened earlier this week.
Mensah took to his personal Twitter handle to congratulate him on his success.
Colorado Springs are already in negotiations with Columbus Crew to sign the highly-rated youngster for $1.2m.
He is yet to represent the senior national of Ghana, the Black Stars.
