I Have Been Asante Kotoko Fan Since My Infancy, Says Legendary Charles Taylor
Charles Asampong Taylor, a former Ghana Premier League kingpin has revealed that he has always been a fan of Asante Kotoko despite playing for Hearts of Oak.
Taylor controversially joined the Porcupine Warriors from Hearst of Oak which was a surprise to many football fans due to the rivalry that exists between the two clubs.
Taylor signed for Kotoko in the 2003/04 season but left the club after just a season to Etoile du Sahel in 2004 for a fee of US$250,000.
When questioned about his preference of the two teams if he had the choice, Taylor noted, “Sincerely, I never dreamt of playing for either side so I was eager to play for any of them at a particular point in time to develop my career," he told Graphic Sports in an interview.
“When Kotoko expressed interest in me, I was so happy that on my way to camp at Winneba, I whistled to myself and imagined myself in a Kotoko jersey for the first time.
“When Hearts also came along, I was very happy because playing for either of them was an honour. However, I had been a fan of Kotoko from infancy,” Taylor added.
His first season with Kotoko was a success and he won the Ghana Premier league with Kotoko in 2003.
Taylor joined the 23 times Ghana Premier champions for a fee record fee of US$42,000.
