Asante Kotoko coach Steven Polack has left the Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, where he had been on admission since the team's vehicular accident last week.

On their return from a topflight midweek fixture against Inter Allies in Accra, Kotoko’s team bus, carrying the playing body and the technical team, ran into a stationary truck at Nkawkaw, leading to several injuries and one confirmed casualty.

Deputy equipment officer Thomas Obeng Asare lost his life.

"One week after being hospitalised at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), Kumasi, following the tragic accident involving the team bus at Nkawkaw in the Eastern Region, Coach Steven Polack has been declared fit to go home by doctors who have been taking care of him," Kotoko announced via their official website on Thursday.

"The Kotoko coach left KATH on Thursday evening. 

"He was driven home by Accra and Premier League Board Representative, Thomas Boakye Agyeman. 

"Polack, who underwent a successful knee surgery 24 hours after the accident, received numerous visits.

Polack was appointed Kotoko coach in May, having earlier had stints with local sides Berekum Chelsea and King Faisal Babes.
