He further stated that, after signing for the Phobians he got an opportunity to play for Italian side Bresci through former Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah’s recommendation for four hundred thousand dollars. He stressed that, he impressed the technical handlers of the team and were prepared to sign him and sell him on to Juventus as they did with Appiah
According to Taylor, he came back home to gather his stuff only for Hearts of Oak to block the deal and told him there was a better deal from a Swiss club whic
h appeared to be untrue. Asked how much he gained from the money Hearts paid to sign him, Taylor said he didn’t get a dime, because his manager, one Jonathan Laryea took all the money to rent a shop to sell items. He, however, said in a jovial way, that he got a black Golf 2 car from the whole deal.
After spending three seasons at Hearts of Oak, Taylor joined Kotoko in one of the heated transfers in Ghana’s history. He was part of the Black Stars that won silver in the maiden edition of the Championship of Africa Nations (CHAN) in Ivory Coast.
