Departing Coach Steve Polack bemoans lack of planning at Kumasi Asante Kotoko

Published on: 12 March 2018

Former Asante Kotoko coach Steve Polack has bemoaned the lack of planning at the club and has hinted that he will not work with the Porcupine Warriors again if their structure remains the same.

Polack who was shown the exit by the Porcupine Warriors following their exit from the preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup clash left Ghana on Sunday for his home country Finland.

And before he left Ghana, the unhappy coach revealed the lack of structures at the club as a major obstacle hindering their progress.

“I’m a bit sad that I’m leaving. I feel like, I need to go home, have a little break; get refreshed mentally and physically, spend some time with my family and who knows I could be back here in a couple of weeks’ time,” Polack told Accra based Citi FM before leaving for the UK on Sunday.

He hinted of returning to Ghana but his likely return will be at a club that has “vision’’ insinuating the Porcupine Warriors are visionless.

“But if I was to come back to Ghana, it has to be a club that actually has a vision and plan, and a strategy not for one season but two, three-four, five years and they are ambitious. Not like hey! We got to win today otherwise you are out. I think you need to have a plan” he said.

Asked if he thought Kotoko didn’t have a plan, he replied: “Well, let’s just say, I don’t know what the planning order is so you need to ask them what the plan is. I don’t know what the plan is…”

Polack guided the Porcupine Warriors to win the MTN FA Cup and placed 5th on the league table.
