Goalkeeper of capital-based heavyweights Hearts of Oak, Benjamin Mensah has narrated his ordeal he went through after his side lost to sworn rivals Asante Kotoko in the 2017 MTN FA Cup finals.
Dubbed the ‘Unmissable’ finals, the Phobians slugged it out against their eternal nemesis Asante Kotoko in the finals staged in Tamale – Alhaji Aliu Mahama sports stadium.
With the form guide tilting towards the Rainbow Club, the odds were in their favour but a superlative display from the Saddick Adams-led Porcupine Warriors ended the game after 45 minutes with the bulky striker notching a hat trick.
A header from Hearts skipper, Thomas Abbey in the second half proved to be only a consolation goal as the Reds handed a heavy loss to their rivals. In between the sticks was Benjamin Mensah, who conceded three against Kotoko.
Sharing his ordeal after the game, the former New Edubiase shot-stopper narrated:
“One game that we lost and I felt very bad was the FA Cup finals against Kotoko in Tamale we lost that game and I felt very bad I came home and for about one week I could not go out I stayed in door throughout I did not know what to do to myself I was dreaming to lift that trophy but unfortunately we lost it was very difficult for me” Ben Mensah said in an interview with Hearts TV.
The goalkeeper who has found playing time hard to come by still believes he can win a trophy for the Capital based club very soon
“I still want to win a trophy with the club before I leave the club” the ex-King Faisal player further said.
Accra Hearts of Oak travel to Bechem to face Bechem United in a mid-week fixture in the ongoing Ghana Premier League and Ben Mensah is in contention to man the post despite stiff competition from Richard Attah and Richmond Ayi.
