Former Ghanaian footballer, Charles Taylor has mentioned Stephen Appiah as the best player he played with in his career.

The Ghanaian footballer who played for Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko said this when speaking on a interview on Tru 92.5fm eastern region based radio station.

He said Stephen Appiah was not only good on the pitch but his commitment also count. He was also grateful to what Stephen Appiah did by paying his plane ticket to Italy by the time he wanted him to play for Brescia before the disappointment from Hearts of Oak.

He said his contract with Brescia expired during the time Hearts of Oak wanted him to go and play for Switzerland based club team.

"I was supposed to return to Italy again after they let me to come and prepare in Ghana so I informed our C.E.O that I will be leaving Hearts of Oak on Wednesday but he told me that there is a team in Switzerland and they are ready to pay me 1million dollars. Me too I wanted to gain more money for Hearts so I boycotted Italy to Switzerland but after all I waisted my time there without doing anything. Later on it was too late to return back to Brescia in Italy but I still appreciate what Stephen did and he is my best ever player in Ghana."
