Ghana's No. 1

Black Stars defender Gideon Mensah believes Kotoko will win GPL title

Published on: 02 May 2022

Bordeaux defender Gideon Mensah believes Asante Kotoko will win the Ghana Premier League title with seven games remaining in the season.

The Porcupine Warriors won for the first time in Sogakope on Saturday as they beat WAFA 1-0 thanks to a great goal by Franck Mbella Etouga, snapping a two-game losing streak.

They currently lead second-placed Bechem United by nine points, with third-placed Hearts of Oak trailing by 12 points.

Despite the huge gap, Hearts of Oak remain hopeful of overtaking Kotoko with 21 points still to be won, but Mensah thinks otherwise.

"Yeah, I think Kotoko can win the league title. I had the chance to have a conversation with one of the players asking him if they are sure they are going to the league and he's confident, so why not," the Black Stars left-back told

"Me that I'm supporting from the back, if the guy on the field is very confident that he's going to win the league, why not, they are going to win the league."

Kotoko's next game, against Aduana Stars in Kumasi, is expected to be difficult.
