Former Heart of Oak attacking midfielder – Charles ‘The Terror’ Taylor has touted the exceptional goal scoring abilities of Ishmael Addo.
According to Taylor, a member of the fearsome Hearts of Oak team that conquered Ghana and Africa [winning the CAF Champions League and the Super Cup in the year 2000 and 2001 respectively], his former strike partner is simply one in a thousand.
“I have played with so many strikers at club level but I can boldly say that Ishmael Addo was a different striker all together,” Taylor said in an interview on the Nationwide Sports Show on Wontumi TV.
“One thing that is so special about Ishmael Addo is his ability to control the ball patiently whenever he finds himself in the penalty box.
“At a point in time I even questioned him as to how he is able to employ such calmness in the goal area.
The Enfant Terrible [Addo] scored 103 goals in 124 appearances for Hearts of Oak.
At the national level, Ishmael Addo was part of the Ghanaian team that won bronze medal at the 1999 FIFA U-17 World Cup in New Zealand where he emerged winner of the Golden Shoe award [7 goals] ahead of Leonardo Santiago of Brazil who scored four  goals.
