Steve Pollack implores Kotoko management to keep CK Akunnor

Former Asante Kotoko coach, Steve Pollack has urged the management of the club to support CK Akunnor by giving him the right materials.

The Ghana Premier League giants were crashed out of the CAF Confederations Cup in the group stage after losing 2:1 to Zesco United in the final group game in Ndola.

After the defeat, reports have gone viral that the former Black Stars skipper will be shown the exit for failing to book quarterfinals berth.

However, the former Berekum Chelsea gaffer maintains that the Porcupines should not focus so much on the elimination, but the club should build a good team for future tournaments by getting hold of the backroom staff and the core players.

“I wasn’t surprised Kotoko got into the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup because it is a big Club and I’m happy for them because it wasn’t an easy task,” he told ASHH FM Breakfast Sports.

“The way forward from the start wasn’t the best because, in competitions like this, you need to win all your home matches and try to secure some points away from home but things didn’t work out well for Kotoko.

“Kotoko must prepare for the future and try to keep the same players and technical team to build cohesion in the team and also learn from their mistakes on and off the pitch,” he added.

Steve Pollack was sacked by the Porcupine Warriors after the club was eliminated from the 2017/2018 CAF Confederations Cup by CARA Brazzaville.
