“I watched him for two days in two separately games and I was amazed at his performance and I approached him to work with me .
“I give Kudos to the Hearts of Oak Board for getting him on board because there was a deal for him in Algeria and he rejected to join Hearts so they have done well.
“I can’t compare both because they are are all my players and moreover, Mbella has already raised the bar by scoring a lot of goals already in the Ghana league so it’s a challenge for him to reach that level but I trust he can also do it.
"He is like Lukaku type of striker and physically stronger than Mbella but Mbella is more intelligent in some situation than Kaaba"
