Ghana defender Sam “Mensiro” Mensah has officially penned a three-year new deal with ambitious Swedish topflight side Ostersunds FK.
The versatile Ghanaian was courted by Danish side Nordsjaelland with the Superliga side making an offer but he has turned it down to stay at the Jamkraft Arena.
“I can tell you that I was very close to moving to Nordsjaelland. But after thinking about and listening to my girlfriend Erika’s opinions, I have now chosen to play in Östersund. After I made the decision, it feels right. I have signed for another three years in the club. It’s a very long contract, but it’s easy to sign on for as many years as you like,” Mensah told his club’s website
“I was so glad Graham wanted me back from Orebro and I really like being here. This club is also very special to me. It was my first club as a professional player and I joined and won Division 2. Now we play Europa League qualifications so it’s a powerful journey. But I think we can write even more story. It will be hard to beat PAOK and go to group games, but we can cause a surprise,”
Mensah, 28, has been one of the best players of Manager Graham Potter so far this season both in the Europa and the domestic league.
