I have been a staunch Kotoko fan since my infancy - Charles Taylor

Former Ghana international, Charles Taylor has confessed that he has been Asante Kotoko since his infancy despite playing for Hearts of Oak.

Taylor joined the Porcupine Warriors during the 2003/04 season.

His move has been described as controversial by many football enthusiasts in the country.

The former Ghana Premier League kingpin joined the Reds for a record fee of US$42,000.

Despite spending a season at the club, his first season with Kotoko was a success and he won the Ghana Premier league with Kotoko in 2003.

Quizzed 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.

Taylor joined Etoile du Sahel from Kotoko in 2004 for a fee of US$250,000.

After an unsuccessful spell in Tunisia he was loaned to Accra Hearts of Oak in October 2006.
