'Out-of-shape' Richard Attah is not good enough to keep Hearts of Oak's goal post - Charles Taylor

Published on: 19 September 2023

Hearts of Oak legend, Charles Taylor has criticized the club for keeping out-of-shape goalkeeper Richard Attah in the post in their opening game of the Ghana Premier League season.

The Phobians were stunned by a lone goal with Owusu Afriyie scoring late at Aliu Mahama Stadium as Real Tamale United secured all three points.

Charles Taylor speaking after the game expressed his disappointment with Richard Attah's performance in the match, suggesting that the goalkeeper shouldn't have been in the starting lineup.

According to him, the goalkeeper trainers should ensure that players are in the right physical condition for matches.

"When you look at the goal that Richard Attah conceded, you won't understand because how can a keeper of his size allow this," Charles Taylor told Accra-based Angel TV.

He further emphasized, "All these, the goalkeepers' trainer has to know that the keepers have to be hardworking. Looking at the size of Attah, he shouldn't have been allowed to be in the post," he added.

RTU's win mean they recorded their fourth consecutive win against Hearts of Oak since their return to the top flight.
