Steve Pollack slams Kotoko management, heads to court over dismissal

Published on: 28 February 2018

Former coach of Asante Kotoko, Steve Pollack slammed the Dr Kyei led management and has hinted he is heading to court to contest his wrongful dismissal.

Pollack was sacked by the management of Asante Kotoko after CARA Brazzaville crashed the club out of the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup in the preliminary round of the competition.

The reason for his sack remains unknown but there are suggestions the Birmingham-born paid for his off-the-pitch behaviour.

Pollack is said to have told an unnamed source:  ''They say coaches are fired to be fired, but I don't understand why they sacked me. I am European, not an African, to just take the money (US$ 16,000 compensation) and say bye bye and walk away

''My lawyers have told me that I should relax and that they will go all the way to find a solution to this issue and until that is done I am not leaving here.

''How long has this management been in office? They have already changed four coaches, but nobody is questioning that. The problem is not with the technical direction of the club; it is management.''
