A statement on the club’s official website confirmed the contract extension, stating, “Gideon Mensah extends contract with BoIS for another two years.”
The sporting director of Varbergs BoIS, Thomas Askebrand, expressed his excitement about Mensah’s return to the field next season after his full recovery. Askebrand highlighted Mensah’s enthusiasm and energy as qualities that inspire the team.
