Berekum Chelsea winger Charles Taylor fears Uriah Asante’s career could end prematurely if he signs for Asante Kotoko.
The exciting Pure Joy enforcer is on the verge of sealing a move to the Premier League Champions after he ended his season’s long-loan at Hearts of Oak last term.
But a proposed $200,000 offer from Tunisian side Etoile Du Sahel has put the move of the 19-year-old to the Kumasi-based side in serious doubt.
Taylor, 30, switched camp from Hearts to Kotoko in a record transfer fee of US$42,000 under controversial circumstances in 2003 and flourish in his first season.
However his transfer to the Porcupine Warriors caused a lot of bitter sentiment towards the former Enugu Rangers player, from which his popularity waned drastically.
He claims he received death threat on his life by a popular Hearts fan Kwaku Adusei, nicknamed ‘Kanewu’ and wants the impressive enforcer to be wary of any move to Kotoko.
“Kanewu once warned me that I will die if I try to leave Hearts and join Kotoko,” Taylor told Kumasi-based Angel FM
Taylor however wondered why players from both sides find it difficult to switch camps.
