Ghana midfielder Bernard Mensah has confessed that Zinedine Zidane inspires him as a footballer and named the French legend as his role model.

The former Vitoria Guimaraes midfielder admitted that he enjoys Zidane's style of play and he still watches videos of the former FIFA World Cup winner.
“I like the way Zinedine Zidane played in his days, I still watch his videos as I also want to play like him. Pogba and Ozil are also special players to me also,” Mensah told Milliyet.
“I feel more comfortable playing as a number 10. It makes me to score and assists goals. Generally my best motivation is that people are watching me so I have to put up a good performance in every game."
The 23-year-old skinny enforcer gave his assessment on the difference between the Spanish Primera Liga and the Turkish SuperLiga.
“The intensity of La Liga is very high but one similar thing it has with Superliga is the results of games, the big teams can beat the small ones."
Mensah has scored three goals and provided three assists in 14 appearances for the Apaches.
