Ghana football legend, Charles Taylor has heavily descended on his former teammate Bernard Don Bortey for joining Kotoko’s celebration last Sunday when celebrating their 25th league glory.
The Porcupine Warriors were officially crowned champions of the 2021/22 Ghana Premier League campaign after thumping on bottom-placed Elmina Sharks by 3-0 at the Baba Yara Stadium in week 33.
The event was really colourful with lots of dignitaries gracing the occasion to help Kotoko celebrate their league glory after seven year abeyance.
However, the story that took center stage and dominated the indigenous media space this morning was pictures of their bitterest rivals Hearts of Oak legend, Don Bortey joining Kotoko’s legends in the celebrations and also lifting up their flag to the fans.
Speaking to Saddick Adam on Angel TV/FM, Charles Taylor- who has played for both teams has stated what Bortey did was uncalled for and that, his move from Hearts to Kotoko is better than this since the latter benefitted greatly from it. He said;
“I can do that cos I played for both teams but not Don Bortey. He can go to the stadium and watch them but not to lift a their flag and join their celebrations.
“Hearts and Kotoko are rivals so seeing one legend celebrating with the other is totally disrespectful. I was invited to the game officially with money sent to me but I couldn’t because of the legends game we played.”
“I agree with Amankwah Mireku. What he did is a disrespect to Hearts. You can commend Kotoko for winning the league but joining their celebrations wasn’t the best.”
“If you do something bad and you apologise, mostly people sometimes listen but I don’t think Hearts of Oak fans will forgive him. My move to Kotoko isn’t like this cos at least Hearts benefitted from my move. There was no sense in celebrating with Kotoko.” He concluded
