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.
