Former Ghana Premier League star Charles Taylor has chosen his stay with Kumasi Asante Kotoko ahead of Accra Hearts of Oak as the team he felt happy with during his playing days.

The “terror Taylor” as he was popularly known  within football circles had a controversial move from the Accra based side to their fiercest rivals Kotoko in 2003.

He had to boycott some games at Hearts of oak to force a move out of the club and successfully won a premier league trophy with the club during his debut season.

In an interview on a segment (Trail Blazers) on Kapital Radio’s morning show, Charles Taylor who was the figure to be celebrated on the day mentioned that his objective at any club was to excel adding he had a better stay with Kotoko than he did with Accra Hearts of Oak.

“Anytime I’m going to play, my prayer is that I won’t make any mistake, though I admit mistakes abound in the game but I never wanted someone to say that Charles Taylor didn’t play well, these were some of the things I didn’t want”.

“I try to put up my best anytime I play no matter where I am, so when I was with Hearts, I tried to play because I wanted to have a good footballing career but it was Kotoko that I felt very excited to be because I saw it as an opportunity to play for a club I had supported since childhood and they also had a good heart to support me when I was with them”, he explained further.

The striker played for Accra Hearts of Oak between 2000 to 2003 and 2008 to 2010 while he spent only one season with Kotoko.

Charles Taylor in 2015 was officially ordained as a Minister of God.
