Breaking: Kotoko sack coach Steve Polack

Ghanaweb.com can confirm that Kumasi Asante Kotoko have sacked head coach Steve Polack, barley 48 hours after the team was eliminated from the CAF Confederation Cup by CARA Club of Congo.

According to a Press Release copied to Ghanaweb.com, Polack’s termination takes immediate effect.

Kotoko were eliminated from the ongoing CAF Confederation Cup after losing 6-7 on penalties to CARA Club of Congo in Brazzaville on Wednesday.

The Porcupine Warriors fought gallantly, losing by a lone goal in regulation time to leave the tie even at 1-1 over the two-legs.

Kotoko also won the first leg by a lone goal in Kumasi a fortnight ago, squandering 3 penalty kicks in the process.

But they went to Congo full of confidence, and really put up a fight but CARA got a goal in the 30th minute to ensure the tie goes into penalty kicks.

In the nervy marathon penalty shoot-outs, Kotoko’s Obed Owusu, Kwame Boahene, Amos Frimpong and Jackson Owusu missed their kicks.
