I Will Always Choose Kotoko Over Hearts Of Oak – Charles Taylor Comes Clean


Ghana Premier League legend, Charles Kwaku Asampong Taylor says based on his personal experience during his playing days, when given the opportunity to choose a club he would love to associate himself with and probably play for again, he will choose Kumasi Asante Kotoko over Accra Hearts of Oak.

Taylor is among few players who have switched camp from the Phobians to join their arch rivals the Porcupine Warriors and in an interview with Zylofon TV’s Jeffries Sintim-Koree, he opined Kotoko has always been his favorite club.

I will always choose Kumasi Asante Kotoko ahead of Accra Hearts of Oak and I have already mentioned on several platforms that, kotoko is my boyhood club even until now. I remember my mum will call and complain whenever I score against Kotoko and I reply it is the nature of my job.

Queried on why he did not don the porcupine jersey in the early stage of his football carrier, ‘the Terrible Terror’ retorted, I never made up my mind to play for Kotoko then. If I had wanted to do so, I could have joined them from Olympics because it was around the time that Kotoko made the approach, Herbert Mensah spoke to me and we got to a near conclusion but the deal did not happen.

The super dribbler was the toast of Ghana football fans, in his heyday between 2000 and 2005, earning him the nickname “Beyie” or ¨Wizard¨ – his skills on the turf were unparalleled.

But all the glory and gleaming success soon took a nosedive when Taylor began to experience injuries.

He has now taken to ministry after football, and is now a pastor with the Glorious Waves International church.
