Steve Pollack not happy with Ghana league delay

Published on: 14 February 2018

Asante Kotoko coach Steve Pollack is unhappy with the delay start of this season's Ghana Premier League.

The League according to the Ghana Football Association calender should have started last weekend but an injunction application secured by Accra Great Olympics made it impossible for the competition to begin.

Coach Steve Pollack who was hoping to use the league to fine tune preparations ahead of his CAF Confederations Cup return game with CARA FC is not happy with the current development.

"From a coach’s perspective you have a pre-season plan, so you know the league starts on the 11th like yesterday, so you do all your pre-season and know what to do 7 days from when you play," he said

"So now we have to change our plans. We’re lucky because now we have to play in CAF so were actually playing.

But after that what happens? If we get to the next round we need games to help in our rhythm and also as motivation to play in the next round. Other coaches I’ve spoken to, they are also thinking in the same line.

"Getting these injunctions, it has to stop. We keep on going on we want to be in the same season with Europe. We have to start all this and finish in May and we haven’t even started the 17/18 season."
