Ex-footballer advises young players to choose Kotoko over Hearts
"For me if you’re a player and you want to have a fruitful life after your career, I would advise that you play for Kotoko rather than Hearts"
According to Taylor who has played for both clubs in explaining his reason said, the supporters of Asante Kotoko are more ‘generous’ than ‘stingy’ Hearts of Oak hence his advice to young footballers to pick the Kumasi based side over the Accra giants.
‘’For me if you’re a player and you want to have a fruitful life after your career, I would advise that you play for Kotoko rather than Hearts. If you play for Kotoko with a good mind and perform exceptionally, you can get whatever you want in life,’’ he told Kumasi-based Boss FM.
He continued: ‘’I realized that at Hearts they will hail you if you perform and at Kotoko they will hail you and present you with all sorts of gifts.
‘’I remember when I came to Kotoko I didn’t take my salary for six months because what I was receiving from the supporters were more than my pay. So if you’re a local player and you want to progress in life you should choose Kotoko ahead of Hearts of Oak.
‘’I still receive gifts from Kotoko supporters. Only big men like TT Brothers normally present us with gift. At Kotoko, even a common second-hand goods clothe seller gives you something unlike Hearts.’’
The retired footballer who is now an ordained Pastor was delight to watch during his playing days as in 2003 his transfer from Hearts of Oak to Kotoko won the major headlines in the country.
