EXCLUSIVE: Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor reckons he can rule darts for another two decades

Taylor celebrates his 53rd birthday next month and says he has no plans to quit darts.
Previously, he  has hinted he will play until he is 55 years-old – or retire when he lifts the world championship for the 20th time.
Taylor has won 16 world titles and is preparing for the start of the European championships in Germany on Thursday.
He has won the title four times in its five-year history and ‘The Power’ says he can carry on winning trophies when he’s a pensioner !
“You could be 75 years old and still win tournaments,” said Taylor.
“As long as you are fit enough and your eyes don’t let you down, why not ?
“If I can carry on doing the right things – practicing hard and going down the gym – there’s no reason why I can’t keep winning titles for many more years.”
Taylor won his first world championship way back in 1990 with victory over mentor Eric Bristow – and even after more than two decades at the top, the grandfather from the Potteries wants more.
He goes into the European Championship as the red-hot favourite after winning the Gibraltar Darts Trophy last weekend with victory over Adrian Lewis in the final and said: “I still want to win every tournament out there.”
