Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko manager, Steven Polack, has described as “disrespectful” the manner in which he was dismissed.
The English man was fired last month after just nine months in charge. The former King Faisal and Berekum Chelsea coach won the MTN FA Cup during his spell but a disappointing outing in the CAF Confederation Cup led to his sack.
The Porcupine Warriors were knocked out of the preliminary round of the CAF inter-club competition by Congolese minnows CARA Brazzaville over two legs.
Polack left for the UK on Sunday evening but told Citi Sports before his departure that the club did not show him enough respect when they sent the club’s secretary to deliver his sack letter.
“Rose [Padmore, Kotoko’s Administrative Secretary], called me asked ‘Are you home?’ I said ‘Yes’, then she comes over and delivers a letter and I went, ‘is this a joke?’,” Polack told Citi Sports.
“Then I send them out and call them back in after five minutes and asked them, ‘what’s the reason?’ but she said nothing.
“That’s not respectful enough. I’m a coach and if I don’t want to work with a player, I’m not going to send my secretary to come tell you that. I will tell it to your face, thank you for your previous work and wish you well.”
In the same interview, Polack accused the club of lacking a plan and vision.
