It has emerged in some media quarters that the Black Stars captain’s monthly allowance has been put on ice till he regain fitness.
However, the player has revealed in an exclusive interview with his official site johntherock5.com: “It is not true that my salary has been frozen, I have received my salary in full since I rejoined the team from the Nations Cup break.
“If there is something like that in the newspapers, I can say it’s absolute false, I was surprised when a close relation told me of the development on phone. In fact, I have the bank statement of my salary for this month as we speak.
“I started training fully yesterday and peaking in performance, and that has gladdened my mangers,” he added.
Meanwhile, the player's agent Fabien told johntherock5.com "It's never true that Mensah's salary has been frozen, even his contract does not permit that, it states that whether he plays or not, his club has no right to temper with his salary."
Mensah, joined the former French champions, Lyon from Rennes in 2008 for a five year term and has been inactive lately due to injury he sustained during the Gabon/Equatorial Guinea championship.
Injury blighted his last Nations Cup, but he went into history books as one of his best competitions; scoring two goals and booking a place in the firs team of the African XI.
