The Englishman who lost his role with the Porcupine Warriors insists he was wrongfully sacked

Former Asante Kotoko coach Steve Polack has rejected suggestions that he was the cause of the club's exit from the Caf Confederation Cup against Congolese team CARA Brazzaville.

The Englishman saw his former side losing 7-6 on penalties after sharing the spoils 1-1 on aggregate and was replaced by Paa Kwesi Fabin days later.

According to the club's lawyer Yaw Boafo Esq, Polack was unable to win three consecutive games while in charge and couldn't grind results when it was badly needed.

However, Polack claims the problem lies rather with the management which has hired four coaches within a year. 

“How long has this management been in office? They have already changed four coaches, but nobody is questioning that,” Polack was quoted as saying by Daily Guide.

“The problem is not with the technical direction of the club but rather it is management.”

According to reports in the local media, Kotoko offered Polack $16,000 as compensation but the former manager has hinted he could be heading to the court to demand more.

 "They say coaches are hired to be fired, but I don’t understand why they sacked me. I am European, not an African, to just take the money [$16,000 as compensation] and say bye and walk away," he said.

"My lawyers have told me that I should relax because they will go all out to find a solution to this issue and until that is done, I am not leaving here [Ghana],” he added.

Goal understands that Ghana Premier League newbies Techiman Eleven Wonders are closing in on Polack in their bid to maintain their top-flight status in the upcoming season
