Former Asante Kotoko coach, Steven Polack has packed out of the country nearly a month after the Management of the club parted ways with him for a so-called non-performance by the coach during the club’s Africa campaign.
Polack was seen at the Kotoka International Airport, Accra with his luggage on Sunday night. Accra-based Citi FM’s broadcast journalist, Fentuo Tahiru in a Facebook post, wrote as thus: “Had a near one-hour chat with Steve Polack before his departure to the UK tonight. I’ve checked in [two] big bags with all my stuff in it. I’m happy to be going home but I will miss Ghana…” he quoted the coach as saying.
Polack, joined Kotoko in the middle of 2017 following the team’s disappointing form which saw the Porcupines go on an eight-match winless streak. Polack, then with another Ghana Premier League side, Berekum Chelsea was brought in to halt the decline of Kotoko’s league fortunes.
A deadly motor accident involving Kotoko’s team bus on the Nkawkaw stretch of the Accra-Kumasi Highway on July 12, 2017 affected Polack’s revival efforts at Kotoko but he ended the season with the Porcupines at 5th place on the league table besides winning the MTN FA Cup.
