Asante Kotoko legal officer Yaw Boafo challenges Steve Polack to go to court


Head of the legal affairs of Asante Kotoko, Yaw Boafo has lambasted Steve Polack over his sacking grievances and challenged him to go to court.

The Porcupine Warriors relieved Steve Polack off his duty as coach of the club following their inability to qualify for the second stage of the CAF Confederation Cup competition.

And reports went widespread on Wednesday that the English gaffer is not happy with the $16,000 compensation package the club gave him hence will head to court.

The reports further stated that the former Berekum Chelsea coach fingers the club’s management over their failure on the continental stage.

But lawyer Boafo was not impressed with the assertion of the Englishman and challenged him to go ahead with his court claims.

“Somebody sent me a link today of Steve Polack blaming us (management) for the reason we didn’t qualify.we played for 180 minutes against CARA, we could not score a goal from open play and we missed 3 penalties.I can’t see how Pollack will come and tell us (management) that it’s our fault” he said.

Lawyer Boafo continued “I never knew I was a striker or a midfielder and Dr Kwame Kyei (Kotoko Executive Chairman) was a goalkeeper…Steve Pollack is the only Coach in Kotoko’s history who never won 3 matches in a row so it’s very good for him to go quietly…and spare this childish stuff blaming everybody, it’s like a kid who’s entered a candy store.”

Kotoko meanwhile, have replaced Polack with Samuel Paa Kwesi Fabin ahead of the 2017/18 Ghana Premier League campaign.
