BREAKING NEWS: Kotoko coach Steve Polack handed 3 match ban, fined GHC2000

Published on: 29 December 2017

Kumasi Asante Kotoko head coach Steve Polack has been slapped with a three match ban and a fine of GHC2000 for misconduct by the Disciplinary Committee of the GHANA Football Association.

The Kotoko manager was found guilty of using abusive words against match officials when his side played Berekum Chelsea in a Premier League game in the just ended league.

The Ghana FA announced the decision on the DC on Friday.

Polack was alleged to have assaulted the match officials verbally when the two sides met in Kumasi - an offence he's been found guilty of.

This means that the Finnish will not be on the bench for the group stage games of the G8 as the decision has effect on the official matches of the club.

Kotoko, however, can appeal the decision if found too harsh or contestable.

    so stupid. why wait till now to punish the guy. how many times did hearts coach use offensive words against other coaches n match officials? 1. the defence and build up should focus on 3 touch 2. midfielders should do 2 touch 3. when the ball reaches the 18, players must adopt 1 touch...ONLY WHY IS YAKUBU A STRIKER HOLDING UNTO THE BALL, BALL HOGGING LIKE THAT? SMH...YAKUBI AS A STRIKER SHOULD ALWAYS BE INSIDE AND AROUND THE 10. TORMENTING THE DEFENDERS AND GOALIE N MUST ONLY STICK TO 1 OR 2 TOUCHES AT MOST...
