The long lasting goalkeeper who have been benched for the young ones to keep the poles has expressed his content with what he have right now. The goalkeeping department of Hearts of Oak is somehow good to the extent that the reserved two including Ben Mensah are all experience with what they have. In no time, it is a good time for goalkeeper Benjamin Mensah to manned his poles back considering the level of consistency and clean-sheets so far, show that he is ready for the job and considered to be given more playing time. A club statement only read: ''Experienced Goalkeeper, Ben Mensah signs contract extension.''
Mensah lost his position as No.1 at the club when Richmond Ayi was signed from WAFA and there were reports he was considering leaving the club. With the arrival of Richard Atta, Mensah drops down the pecking order but he has opted to stay on. Veteran keeper Benjamin Mensah speaking to Hearts Media the club's internal media outlet revealed that he is happy to serve as a source of inspiration to his younger colleagues at Accra Hearts of Oak and believes with time, they will rise to the very top of their game.
The Accra based club has three goalkeepers; Richmond Ayi, Richard Attah, and Richard Baidoo in the first team together with Benjamin Mensah. Mensah competing for the number one shirt has played at the highest level in the local league, some of the clubs he played for are King Faisal, Great Olympics, and New Edubiase United. He indicated that he still has a role to play at the club and will continue to teach the young keepers.
Resuming from the break the Phobians thought the goalkeeper will not be living up to expectation ensuring that there is some problem in their goal area witrh regards to the goalkeeper who is not having more playing time. But critics were proved wrong and the keeper have been instrumental in the three games he has been in the poles. The experience he have is beyond the signings of the Aduana strikers they signed to beef up their squad depth this half of the season. Benjamin Mensah started his first game in two seasons for the Phobians with Richmond Ayi and Richard Attah unavailable. William Dankyi played at left back in place of Congolese International Raddy Ovouka, who arrived late from International duty. New signings Benjamin Tweneboah, Nurudeen Abdulai, Alex Boakye and Kingsley Brefo were given roles in the Aduana starting line-up. After dominating play in the opening half of the game, Hearts of Oak got their well-deserved goal inside 30 minutes through Victor Oduro to register his 7th goal of the season Winger Razak was fouled in the box by defender Abdulai which resulted in the penalty.
