Black Stars defender, Gideon Mensah, says his loan spell at Bordeaux was quite a difficult experience not just for him but also for the club.

Mensah played 23 games in the Ligue 1 last season with just 13 being as a starter as the club suffered relegation to the second tier.

The 23-year-old, who has returned to France after signing for newly-promoted side, AJ Auxerre.

The left-back in an interview with Joy Sports recounts his time with Bordeaux.

“It was a difficult season. We started good, I must say. But going on to the last part of the season was very difficult,” he noted.

“For me, it was the first experience having a season like that. I think it’s part of the season and we still learning. It makes us strong and keeps us going

“It wasn’t an easy one [for me or the club] but we had no choice,” he said.

Mensah made his debut for Auxerre on Wednesday, August 31, against Olympique Lyon.
