‘Strengthen your squad ahead of Africa’ – Charles Taylor tells Kotoko

Ex-Asante Kotoko star has advised the club to augment their squad ahead of their CAF Champions League campaign.

Charles Taylor, 39, who controversially joined the Porcupine Warriors in 2003 from sworn rivals Hearts of Oak, in a mega move that shook the sporting fraternity has cautioned the club to go in for quality players if they wish to go far in their African campaign.

Kotoko, on the other hand, has been busy working behind the scenes, trying to tie down some players in the transfer window.

Former Ashanti Gold attacker, Shafiu Mumuni, Latif Anabila, Karela United stalwart midfielder Emmanuel Keyeke and Yusif Mubarik, have all been hugely linked with the club in this transfer window.

“Kotoko needs to beef up their squad if they want to go far in the CAF champions league especially the full-backs,” Taylor told Kumasi-based Light FM.

“They should sign a sharp left back to create competition for Moro Ibrahim.

“Kotoko don’t have a problem at the goalkeeping department because they have equally good goalkeepers. But they need new faces to strengthen the midfield, and it would be good if they can sign Justice Bay, Latif Anabila and Appiah McCarthy,” he admonished.

Nonetheless, the club is also freeing up space to make room for quality additions after showing centre-back Empem Dacosta the way.

The likes of Augustine Sefa, Sam Adams, Evan Owusu, Richard Arthur, Martin Antwi, Kelvin Mathew Andoh, and Naby Laye Keita, have all been rumoured to be on the exit list of Kotoko.
