Newly appointed head coach of Karela United Bismark Kobby Mensah has named former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as the coach that he looks up to.
The ‘Pride of the West’ recently announced the appointment of Bismark Kobby Mensah as the club’s new head coach ahead of the upcoming season.
Mensah will be a direct replacement to Evans Adotey who was sacked at the back end of last season.
Speaking to Kumasi based Wontumi FM, the enterprising coach disclosed love for the French trainer and is hoping to follow in his footsteps.
“My mentor is Arsene Wenger so I believe in the youth, i just have to see the talent in the youth and I will always believe in them. I believe my goal and vision go in line with that of Karela United and I am confident I will succeed”
Mensah, an ex-Ghana U17 striker, has come on in leaps and bounce as a coach and credited for Samartex’s transformation since his arrival in 2018.
His ingenuity helped Samartex to finish third in Zone II of the Division One League; nine points behind champions Bibiani Gold Stars.
Mensah has Premier League experience from his days at Bechem United.
The Ghana Football Association appointed Mensah as deputy coach for the national U15 team in 2019.
