Akwetey Mensah (born April 15, 1983) is a Ghanaian footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder beside Al-Minaa in Iraqi Premier League .

Career[edit]

He transferred to El-Ahly in the 2005-2004 season from El-Masry for a speculated record fee for the Egyptian League back at the time.[1] In his debut match, which happened to be in the opening match of the group phase of the African Champions League against Enyimba in Nigeria, Akwetey suffered a tear in his knee ligaments without being touched by any player, only 6 minutes into the game and this kept him out of action for the rest of the season. In the next season, he played some games and came in as a sub. He only started in two or three games and couldn't get the attention of the Coach Manuel José as he didn't get back in form. He was linked with a possible transfer back to El-Masry as of January 2007 and with Al Ahli Dubai.[2] In 2009, he signed for the Belgian Club Lierse S.K. [3] On 27 May 2009, it was announced that he had joined Belgian club Lierse.[4]
