Former Kotoko Coach Steven Polack wants the Club to compensate himself together with victims of an accident suffered three years ago.
Kotoko suffered a horrifying accident after a Ghana Premier League match against Inter Allies, a tragedy which claimed the life a former bus driver with the rest sustaining various degrees of injuries including Polack.
Club CEO Dr. Kwame Kyei however promised to compensate the team, a promise which is yet to fulfilled by the bankroller of the Club.
“Sunday, July 12 marks three years since the horrific incident happened but still not received a penny from Kotoko and we don’t know as to when our compensations would be paid”, he said in an interview.
“Basically, it’s a human thing that you do that, you come to your employee’s aid when there has been some kind of problem to your employee”, he said in an interview.
“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 any 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 concluded.
