Steven Taylor immediately takes it too far after completing move to the A-League – Unbelievable

Ex-NUFC defender Steve Taylor has completed a move to Australian League side Wellington Phoenix – and his comments in his opening press conference are absolutely priceless, with him claiming that the A-League is ‘one of the best leagues in the world‘.

The 32-year-old has always had a tendency to get a little carried away both on and off the pitch, but this is perhaps taking things to new extremes – even by Taylor’s standards.

Here’s what he’s had to say since swapping Peterborough for down under today:

“As soon as I was aware of the interest, I knew it was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up,” 

“I know that I am joining an exciting project under Mark as well as playing in one of the best leagues in the world in the A-League.”

Classic Taylor. Good luck to him, though.

Since his 13-year spell at St James’ Park was ended in 2016, he’s played in the MLS with Portland Timbers, in the Championship with Ipswich and most recently in League One with Peterborough, so this promises to be another interesting challenge for the former Wallsend Boys Club prospect.
