- He is the second expatriate coach to be fired within the span of two days in the country, as Accra Hearts of Oak also parted ways with Coach Frank Nuttal yesterday.
The management of Kumasi Asante Kotoko has severed ties with the club's expatriate coach, Steven Polack.
In a statement released and signed by the Director of Communications of the club, Mr. Obed Acheampong, the club stated that it has relieved Polack of his duties with immediate effect.
The club wished the coach well in his future endeavors. Management also assured supporters of the club of their continuous dedication to ensuring the club consolidate gains made so far, as they embark on new fruitful courses.
Steve Polack has been under incessant pressure from both managers of the club and supporters after the club was eliminated in the preliminary round of this year’s CAF Confederations Cup competition on penalties by unsung side, Club Athletique Rennaissace Aiglon (CARA) of Congo Brazzaville.
Speaking with myghanalinks.com reporter, Simon Aikins, on condition of anonymity, several staunch fans of the club expressed the opinion that Mr. Polack should have been given time to build the team into a formidable side, especially after giving out his all, to the extent of almost losing his life in an accident involving the team bus last season. Several others were of the view that his performance since taking over the club has been below par. Hence, the need to sack him to make way for a competent coach capable of delivering for the team.
Interestingly, he is the second expatriate coach to be fired within the span of two days in the country, as Accra Hearts of Oak also parted ways with Coach Frank Nuttal yesterday.
