Bernard Mensah, the standout player in Saudi Arabia’s topflight league, delivered a remarkable hat-trick that left Al Tai reeling in agony as they suffered a painful defeat to Al Ettifaq.
This midfield maestro emerged as the hero during their Saudi Pro League clash against the formidable Knight of Ad-Dahna on Wednesday night. It took him a mere 45 minutes to accomplish his first career hat-trick for Al Tai, contributing to a thrilling 4-3 victory.
The Ghanaian football sensation, who also claimed the match ball, shared his thoughts on social media, stating, “Happy to score my first hat trick @spl.. not the result we wanted we focus on the next game”
Meanwhile, Al Tai’s performance in the 2023-24 league season’s initial six matches has been, at best, just slightly above average. They have secured two wins, endured three losses, and played to a draw in their most recent encounter against Al Hazem over the weekend.
However, it’s worth noting that Al Tai had an impressive track record against Steven Gerrard’s star-studded Al Ettifaq in the last two seasons. Unfortunately, their away form has recently taken a hit, as they haven’t managed to win any of their last eight league matches on the road.
