Asante Kotoko coach, Steven Polack has been given a three-match touchline ban and a combined GH¢4,000 fine by the Ghana FA Disciplinary Committee.
The Englishman attracted the DC rap for his conducts in two successive Ghana Premier League games last season.
Polack’s troubles began when he “rushed onto field of play” according to the Disciplinary Committee charge, during the Porcupine Warriors’ dramatic 1-0 defeat away to Bechem United on October 8. He received a GH¢2,000 fine and a warning.
But another case of misconduct which followed exactly a week after has courted Polack more trouble as he in addition to another GH¢2,000 fine, gets barred from the touchline for three official matches. He was accused of “using insulting words against a match official.”
Footy-Ghana.com gathers a livid Polack charged at centre-referee after his side’s 1-0 victory at home against Berekum Chelsea on October 15 and allegedly told him ‘even Steve Wonder could see a decision he had turned a blind eye on.’
The sanction thus applies to all Kotoko’s Ghalca G-8 Tournament group stage matches since it is the club’s immediate official competition scheduled for January. Should Kotoko decide against filing an appeal, coach Polack will be barred from the dugout in the games against Aduana, Dreams FC and Techiman Eleven Wonders.
