Columbus Crew fans were quick to condemn Ghana defender Jonathan Mensah for his shocking error as The Black & Gold slipped to a 2-0 home defeat in the MLS against Atlanta United.
The Black Stars defender, who was deemed important and recalled from Ghana’s camp ahead of USA friendly to help Columbus overcome Atlanta, ended up infuriating fans as he produced a blunt performance.
Crew fans were left disappointed as Mensah failed to clear his lines and in the process set up Atlanta attacker Tito Villalba to convert for the first goal which propelled the away to claim full spoils at the Mapfre Stadium Columbus, Ohio.
