AshantiGold sign Kofi Mensah to solve goalkeeping quandary

AshantiGold have moved to solve their goalkeeper problems with the signing of Kofi Mensah.

Despite bringing in Burkinabe international Bailou Mohammed to fill the vacuum created by the departure of first-choice Frank Boateng prior to the start of the 2020/21 season,  the goalkeeping department has turned out into a problem position for the Miners.

Due to consistent individual errors leading to leaking, AshantiGold have had to use all three goalkeepers – Bailou, the experienced Robert Dabuo and Felix Clottey – in 14 matches this campaign.

And the unconvincing trio has combined to ship in 19 goals – a static that puts the Miners joint second behind King Faisal (25) in the ranking of goal concessions.

With the opening of the second transfer window, former Karela United shot-stopper Kofi Mensah is the man the club has decided to fall on to stop the rot.

The 24-year-old was a member of the Karela United squad that secured qualification to the GPL in 2017 and was the first-choice in their run-up to the final of the NC Special Cup in 2019.

The former Ebusua Dwarfs, Smartex FC and Tema Youth FC goalkeeper, however, moved on to join Zambian giants Power Dynamos in 2020 but is now back home.

Kofi Mensah, on Thursday, February 18, signed a three-year deal with AshantiGold.
