Isaac Mensah: I idolize Ibrahimovic

Newly signed striker Isaac Mensah said he idolizes former Swedish international and current AC Milan player Zlatan Ibrahimovic and will want to end up being like him.

Mensah has signed a three-year deal with Hearts of Oak and is set to join his new teammates for pre-season training when the greenlight is given for the resumption of football after the Covid-19 situation has been calmed.

“Growing up as a child, I always admired Ibrahimovic as a striker and, it is my ambition to play to the levels he reached for club and country”, Mensah told Hearts Media.

“He has always scored goals wherever he has been and, that has made it possible for him to win the numerous trophies and goal king titles wherever he has been, and I want to be like him.”

The teenage striker said the former Ajax, Manchester United, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Juventus player has been a source of inspiration for him throughout his career and will work hard to get to the level he reached as a top striker.

“I want to be a success at Hearts and, I will work hard to fulfil that dream now that I have signed for one of the biggest clubs in Africa”, the former Nkoranza Warriors forward added.

He scored eight goals in 13 matches for the Division One side in Zone One in the 2019/20 football season that has been cancelled by the Ghana Football Association due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
