Ghana duo Harrison Afful and Jonathan Mensah return to training with Columbus Crew

​Ghanaian duo Harrison Afful and Jonathan Mensah have officially resumed training following the suspension of the league due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Afful and Mensah involved themselves in outdoor training for the first time in almost two months under strict rules.

Columbus Crew's return to training can only mean that all the Major League Soccer teams are preparing for the league's resumption.

Crew's head coach Caleb Porter revealed that the team is ready to do all they can to ensure the safety of the players.

“We’re ready, whatever the league says. Whatever our ownership and our president says. Whatever the government says, we’re going to follow,” Porter said.

“And we’re going to be ready. And if they tell us tomorrow we can do groups of three or four, great. We’re going to do it. We’re going to come up with some training and progress.

"We’ll be happy. If they tell us we’re doing individuals for another three weeks, we’ll do it. If they tell us we can do team training, we’ll roll with it.

"We’re ready. We’ve got a good team, we’ve got a good group of guys. So I’m looking forward to whatever’s ahead.”
