Asante Kotoko made me rich – Charles Taylor

Ghana Premier League legend, Charles Taylor has recounted events in his playing days and has concluded that Asante Kotoko is a better club than Hearts of oak after playing for both sides.

Asante Kotoko stunned Hearts of Oak 14 years ago when they prised Taylor away from their sworn rivals.

Taylor swapped the Phobians for the Porcupine Warriors for a then record fee of GH₵ 40,000 (roughly US$42,000) after three trophy-laden years with the capital-based club, winning the nation’s top flight three straight times and Hearts’ first-ever CAF Champions League trophy in 2001.

And his first season with the Kumasi-based club was a success as he won the Ghana Premier league with Kotoko in 2003.

“Hearts of oak helped me and shot me fame, but I gained all the wealth I have now when I played in Kumasi for Kotoko”, Taylor disclosed in an interview on Asempa FM

“I never touch my salary whiles in Kotoko. The people of Kumasi took very good care of me than when I was in Accra and I still do get a lot of help from the Kotoko fraternity.”

However, Hearts got their revenge over Kotoko when they won the 2005 CAF Confederation Cup at the latter’s expense. Charles Taylor played and scored in the two-legged final but it was not enough to save Kotoko from their bitterest defeat ever at the hands of Hearts.

Taylor took to ministry after football and is now a pastor with Glorious Waves International church.
