Ghana's No. 1

Former Ghana midfielder Charles Taylor has taken a shot at current Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko players, claiming none of them would have made the bench of the 2004 CAF Confederations Cup squad.

Current crop of players in the Ghana Premier League have faced opprobrium from former players who are calling them out for their poor work ethic.

According to Taylor, who was a cult hero for rivals Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko, has also added his voice to the subject.

“In our generation we play with determination and want the current generation of Asante Kotoko and Hearts of Oak players to learn from us so that they will be better than us,” he told Ashh FM.

“When you compare our era example Stephen Oduro was a good player and he played beautiful football.”

“There is no player in both Kotoko and Hearts of Oak currently who plays like Stephen Oduro,” he argued.”

“This current players of Kotoko and Hearts are “too known” they will even tell you, the old player, you have finished with your career. Making them unwilling to receive advise from us.”

“In the 2004 Confederations Cup squad none of Kotoko and Hearts current players will be a starter. Even none of them will get a position in our team, it will be very difficult for them to get a chance on bench,” Taylor ended.
