Former Asante Kotoko head coach Steven George Polack has slammed the management of the club after failing to compensate persons who were involved in an accident three years ago.
The Porcupine Warriors, after a Ghana Premier League (GPL) away clash with Inter Allies in Accra, were involved in an accident on their way back as the team bus crashed into a stationary truck on the Nkawkaw dual carriage road.
The incident saw the death of deputy equipment officer Thomas Obeng Asare while many others, including players, team officials and journalists, sustained various degrees of injuries.
With three years on, management of the Ghanaian powerhouse, are yet to compensate the accident victims and Polack who currently coaches Kenyan Premier League side Gor Mahia, feels embarrassed and wants the management to do the needful by duly compensating them.
The British trainer however, has urged management of the club to ‘think like adults’ and compensate them since it’s a shame on their part to ignore the accident victims.
“Basically it’s a human thing that you do that, you come to your employee’s aid when there have been kind of problem to your employee” said the 2015 FA Cup winner speaking to Wontumi Sports.
He added that “You are an employee and you are working for an employer, you expect them (employer) to take care of you whatever that happens to you during your contract or how long you’ve been working there so we are expecting them(Asante Kotoko) to do that.
“Let’s be honest, they are adult, they should know these things; If the tables turn around and it happens to them, how will they feel, three years later and we still haven’t been compensated, what if is them was in the accident, don’t you think they would have already got their compensation?, he quizzed
“So always you need to put yourself in other people’s shoes and feel it too, Kotoko needs to compensate us(accident victims).” Polack conculed.
