Management of Kumasi Asante Koto has confirmed Stephen Polack as the new Head Coach for the club until the end of the 2016/2017 Ghana Premier League.
Lawyer Yaw Boafo, Head of Legal Affairs has confirmed in a brief interaction that “although contract papers are yet to be signed, Kotoko and the English man have reached an agreement to work”.
According to a report on the club’s official website, there will be a formal introduction of the new coach and team members before he starts work.
“Management would introduce him formally to the team before he finally starts work. Already, Polack has dropped hints of meeting both the backroom staff and the players. It’s unlikely he will be on the bench when Kotoko host Tema Youth on the final day of the league’s first round.
He would however be the man in-charge when the second half of the season starts”, it stated.
Polack has been charged to restore the waned confidence of the players and to bring back enthusiasm by winning matches which in effect would largely revive Kotoko’s fortunes in the league.
“The coach would therefore need the firm backing of Management and supporters, who must have the patience for good result”, the report added.
Polack, who has been in Ghana this year at the request of Berekum Chelsea, is expected to settle in Kumasi by the close of the week.
Kotoko’s fortunes have declined badly since the departure of former coach, Zdravko Logarusic, who played 11 matches – won five, drew four and lost two before the club parted ways with him.
The Porcupines have drawn three matches and lost four times since Zdravko’s exit.
