Former Ghana star Charles Taylor has disclosed that some persons used black magic to prematurely end his playing career.
Taylor cites an example where the leg of a goat, representing him in the spirit world, was broken and the animal buried alive some years ago.
This ritual was meant to curtail his playing career and bring his mercurial talent to an end.
But the player claims he has seen a pastor who is trying to reverse that.
Taylor's career has been on a nose-dive after a controversial move from Hearts of Oak to rivals Asante Kotoko in 2003 for the then domestic transfer record fee of 40,000 Ghana cedis (US$ 42,000).
He has battled recurring injuries since and has been unsuccessful with clubs.
