As a professional club in Ghana I do not expect this wrong gestures from them

A lot of clubs including Hearts of Oak, Ashantiglod, Karela United et al. Have all ended some contractual terms but to do it professionally is the way Kotoko did to William Opoku. Other teams will be happy for the player to fight for them such as liberty to move out from the relegation zone. The former Karela United forward played his second game of the season for the club when Kotoko played Dreams FC on Sunday in matchday six of the Ghana Premier League. I would have gone to Hearts of Oak if they came for my services. The more professional you consider yourself as a club the experience you get in all endeavors to prosper. The player from Karela plays like Patrick Razak from the wings and can take on defenders as well. Asante Kotoko beat Dreams 1-0 to win their first match following the dismissal of coach Maxwell Konadu. The Porcupine Warriors, under the guidance of interim coach Johnson Smith, produced an improved performance to secure the victory at the Theatre of Dreams in Dawu. The Porcupine Warriors refused to offer the former Karela United captain a fresh contract following his poor output at the club since his arrival in 2019.


Opoku Mensah joined Asante Kotoko on a one-year deal with an option of renewal prior to the commencement of the 2019/20 Ghana Premier League which was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. He scored two goals in his eight appearances for Asante Kotoko in the 2019/20 season. He joined the Kumasi-based club on a free transfer last year after his contract with American side second-tier side Swope Park Rangers was terminated. With consecutive poor results mixed with a few wins, the team finished the first round of the season in the relegation zone of the league table.

In need of a turnaround, Liberty Professionals have taken advantage of the second transfer window to sign a new striker. The club today has confirmed the signing of former Asante Kotoko forward William Opoku Mensah on the back of successful negotiations. “Forward William Opoku Mensah is a Scientific Soccer Lad. Welcome to Dansoman!,” a post on the Twitter page of Liberty reads.

The system of Ghana League has mot been delicate enough like it use to be. The decision to say that once man's meet is another man's poison. It was a bad decision to sack a player because of one season performance. Most situation he has then occupy his position as a competent striker but fell off the way race as they sign new players. The striker is best known for his successful days at Karela United where he established himself as one of the best strikers in the Ghana Premier League. Liberty beat off competition from other GPL rivals to the signature of the 25 year old, who left Kotoko in January 2021 following the expiration of his contract. The former Karela United captain is expected to add much needed experience and firepower to a Liberty Professionals attack that has proven to be among the worst in the league, with just 11 goals in 17 games so far this campaign. Liberty sit in the relegation places in 17th position on the league log, 4 points from safety at the half way stage of the season.
