Ex-Kotoko coach Steve Polack chases club for unpaid accident compensation after four years

Former Asante Kotoko head coach, Steve Polack has dragged the club to court as he seeks to claim his unpaid accident compensation after four years.

The gaffer was on board the team’s bus from Accra to Kumasi in 2017 after a match against Inter Allies FC when they, unfortunately, had an incident leaving several injured and one dead.

Coach Steve Polack was one of the many officials and players who sustained various degrees of injuries and had to be rushed to the hospital to receive treatment.

Four years on where Asante Kotoko has not paid any compensation for the accident, the English tactician has decided to drag the club to court.

“A few letters have been sent to the club over the last two years and the reply has always been the same. It doesn’t matter which administration is there, it has always been the same answer and nothing comes out of it.

“For the new administration, we have given them time and nothing comes from it so it’s going to court,” coach Steve Polack told Gye Nyame FM in an interview.

The English tactician continued, “Why would I forget it and move on when I am still having health issues. It does not make sense, I am still having physical and mental issues.”

It is understood that the first hearing of the case will take place on May 17, 2021.
