Charles Taylor has said that the Ghana Premier League may never witness the Ishmael Addo kind of striker again.

According to Charles Taylor who together with Ishmael Addo and Bernard Don Bortey formed a deadly attacking triumvirate for Accra Hearts of Oak in the early 2000’s, his former teammate [Addo] is one of a kind.

“It will be very difficult for us to see Ishmael Addo kind of striker in our league again,” Charles Taylor told Wontumi Nationwide Sports last Friday.

“In fact, it is going to take us more years even if we are likely to get one in our local league.

“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,” Taylor noted.

“At a point in time I even questioned him as to how he’s able to employ such calmness in the goal area.

“Ishmael was an exceptional goal scorer,” he added.

“I have watched the Ghana Premier League for a while and what I have witnessed is that most of the strikers unlike Ishmael Addo are always in a haste to shoot anytime they get into the penalty box.”

Nicknamed Enfant Terrible, Ishmael Addo came from the bench to score on his debut for Hearts of Oak in a league match which the Phobians annihilated Afienya United 4-1 in the 1999 league season where he finished as the top scorer with 16 goals.

The prolific goal scorer went ahead in the subsequent season to set a Ghana Premier League goal scoring record [22 goals] in a single season.

Addo, a proven goal scorer scored a total of 57 goals for Hearts of Oak in his first three seasons. He won four Premier League titles, two FA Cups, CAF Champions League, and CAF Super Cup for Hearts of Oak whiles winning the goak king on three occasions.
