Disrespectful Asante Kotoko sent their secretary to deliver my exit letter – Steve Pollack reveals

Published on: 13 March 2018

Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko manager, Steven Pollack, has described as the way and manner in which he was dismissed as “disrespectful”.

The former Berekum Chelsea trainer was shown the exit last month after failing to qualify the team to next round of the 2018 CAF Confederations Cup.

The Porcupine Warriors were knocked out of the preliminary round of the CAF inter-club competition by Congolese side, CARA Brazzaville over two legs.

Speaking to Accra based Citi FM on Sunday before he left the shores of the country, Polack revealed that the club did not show him enough respect when they sent the club’s secretary to deliver his sack letter.

“Rose [Padmore, Kotoko’s Administrative Secretary], called me asked ‘Are you home?’ I said ‘Yes’, then she comes over and delivers a letter and I went, ‘is this a joke?’,” Polack told Citi Sports.

“Then I send them out and call them back in after five minutes and asked them, ‘what’s the reason?’ but she said nothing.

“That’s not respectful enough. I’m a coach and if I don’t want to work with a player, I’m not going to send my secretary to come tell you that. I will tell it to your face, thank you for your previous work and wish you well.”

The English trainer won the MTN FA Cup defeating Hearts of Oak 3:1 and finished the 2016/17 season on the 5th position.
