Salifu has been one of the poster boys in the ongoing 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League as he is highly revered by fans of Accra Hearts of Oak.

Taylor, who spent three seasons at the capital club winning the CAF Champions League, Super Cup, and two Ghana Premier League titles as well as one FA Cup title, has revealed sharing a tight bond with the talented midfielder.

“I have been to where the team is based a couple of times and been close to the team. If you get close to Salifu you understand why he is that good on the pitch."

"He is very respectful and is ready to learn. Before they took on Medeama SC he called me before the game and I inspired him to give off his best and score which he did,” he said on Angel TV.
