Published on: 14 July 2023

Newly appointed Bechem United coach Bismark Kobi Mensah has said he has a similar style of coaching to his predecessor, Kasim Ocansey Mingle.

Mingle departed the club at the end of the season to join Ghana Premier League newcomers, Nations FC.

Kobi Mensah on the other hand was in charge of Great Olympics but has seen his place now occupied by Annor Walker who returned after spending a season in Samreboi with Samartex.

Having landed the Hunters coaching job ahead of the new season, Kobi Mensah says he possesses similar qualities with Kasim Mingle.

"I will first of all commend Kassim Mingle. He has done a very good job at Bechem United. I have trained with them before and I always see a good team in Bechem. And again I've watched some of their matches and I can attest o the fact that they play very good football."

"I am also happy about the fact that we [Kassim Mingle and Kobi Mensah] have similarities in our style of coaching. I am also fortunate to have inherited the good players Kassim Mingle worked with," he told Onua Sports.

"We play attacking football. He always wants his team to control possession and that is the best way to play football. If you want to score goals you need the ball. If you want to defend you need the ball. If you don't want to concede a goal you need a ball. So controlling the game benefits in all aspects.

"It is a very good philosophy. Kassim Mingle believes in attacking football and I believe in the same philosophy.
