Former Asante Kotoko coach to take legal actions against the club
Former Asante Kotoko and Berekum Chelsea coach, Steven George Pollack is set to take legal action against the Porcupine warriors over unpaid accident compensation.
It will be recalled that players and officials of Kotoko on a return to Kumasi after losing to Inter Allies at the El Wak Stadium in Accra were involved in an accident that resulted in the death of their deputy equipment officer Thomas Obeng Asare.
However, reports indicate that the team bus of Asante Kotoko had no insurance package to compensate casualties involving Steve Pollack and players of the club at the time, leaving them to their fate.
It is in light of this that the English gaffer has threatened to take legal action against the Kumasi-based fabulous club.
“This will be the first time taking legal action against my employer and sometimes in life you have to do and I felt something has to be done,” he said.
When quizzed whether the accident has affected him, he disclosed that it has a toll on him physically and mentally.
“Yeah, physically my right knee can’t bend no more like my left knee also having a problem with my neck and back”
“I feel more pains during winter than summer since the accident, I haven’t done any running and am a sports person, I find it difficult to run because of my knee.
“Mentally, sometimes I will wake up and my bed will be wet with sweat because I have been dreaming about the accident and what happened and I don’t know why I’ve not been compensated,” he concluded in an interview with Enoch Kwasi Worlanyo Wallace on Asempa FM.
