Former Hearts of Oak star Ishmael Addo has settled on former teammate Charles Taylor as the best in terms of football skills and believes Don Bortey does not come anywhere near.
In an interview with TV3, the Hearts Of Oak legend admitted that Bortey’s greatest asset was his pace and power but far behind Taylor with dribbling abilities.
“A couple of days ago, a friend of mine was telling me about this [debate] and I don’t even understand why [they are being compared].”
“Looking at these two players, they have different styles of play altogether though they are both wingers. Taylor is a better dribbler than Bortey but Bortey also has some qualities that Taylor doesn’t have. Bortey has more pace,” he added.
“It is difficult to compare the two of them because they are both different but I enjoyed playing with both them. They both contributed a lot to Ghana football and Hearts of Oak.”
“I enjoyed playing with Taylor who had the skills to make things happen, and I enjoyed playing with Bortey with his crosses and speed.
“They both added something to my game and I must say it a pleasure playing with them.”
Don Bortey in recent interviews revealed that he is embarking on coaching coaches and has high hopes of managing the clubs in the country in the near future.
