Former Asante Kotoko coach Steven Polack has hit back at the club, describing the two-time African champions as ‘visionless’ and ‘without a plan’ for the future.
In his last interview before he departed for his native Britain, Polack bemoaned the lack of planning at Kotoko and says anytime he has the opportunity to work with a Ghanaian club again, he will love to be at a club that appreciates planning.
Polack, 57, was fired last month after he failed to guide Kotoko through to the group stage of CAF Confederation Cup. The Porcupine Warriors suffered a first-round exit at the hands of Congolese side CARA Brazzaville.
“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 Citi FM.
“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 for one, two, three-four-five seasons and they are ambitious. Not like hey! We got to win today otherwise you are out,” he said. 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…”
The former Berekum Chelsea manager joined Kotoko in middle of last season. He won the MTN FA Cup and finish 5th in the league.
