Charles Taylor alongside Charles Allotey, Amankwah Mireku, Joseph Ansah, Jacob Nettey, Stephen Tetteh, Ishmael Addo, Emmanuel Osei Kuffour, Sammy Adjei, Edmund Copson, and Emmanuel Adjogu were deemed as the best squad ever to be assembled by Accra Hearts of oak and also famously called “64 Battalion” after winning the CAF Champions League, CAF super cup, FA cup and the Ghana premier league in 2000/2001 season.
Truly, the Phobians have had some very good teams in the past – like the one that won the Ghana Premier League with a record 78 points, or even the group that went unbeaten in the 2003 league season. However, Cecil Jones Attuquayefio’s class of 2000 was on a totally different level. For they remain the greatest of all.
This ’64 Battalions’ took Herts of Oak to conquer Africa by winning the CAF Champions League, CAF super cup, FA cup and the Ghana premier league in 2000 in Dan Quaye.
The performance of the current Hearts of Squad is also outstanding but cannot be compared to the ’64 Battalions’ according to the 40-year old defender.
“No, it’s a mistake to make that comparism. They haven’t reached there because in our time we were in the national team for so many years before coming to Hearts and they can get that experience if they play for two to three years and do better but this team cannot be compared to our team. Our team was a team and I won’t lie”. He told Ghanasportspage.com
“It will be difficult to win Champions League without a defeat. This comparism can’t be done based on their two games played in the Champions League by this team. We never lost a single game in even our qualifiers to the end of the competition but we should pray that they can repeat that. We want some team to break this record because it’s been so many years after that and it is good for them to do that.” He explained. Dan Quaye told Sir Martin on Ghanasportspage.com.
