Hearts of Oak head coach Kim Grant has disclosed the reason why he completed the signing of Karela United midfielder Emmanuel Mintah ahead of the upcoming season.

The 47-year-old was left impressed with Mintah's performance when the Phobians played Karela in the Normalisation Committee Special Competition as he mustered the midfield for the Anyinase based club.

Speaking in an interview with Accra based Angel FM, the former Ghana international said the defensive midfielder possesses a lot of qualities which can help Hearts of Oak in the upcoming Ghana Premier League season.

"When we played Karela United, I saw something in him, especially when we played away in Anyinase," he said.

"He was the one disturbing my system by breaking down attacks and allowing Emmanuel Keyekeh and others get the freedom to operate."

"He is a very technical player, he has a great shot on him, I felt Hearts needed someone who could break down attacks."

Mintah made 13 appearances for Karela United during the GFA Normalisation Committee Special Competition as they lost in the final to Asante Kotoko.
