Former Coach of Kumasi Asante Kotoko Steve Pollack has revealed that he is taking the club to court for the non payment of his compensation after the accident.
According to him, all efforts made by his legal team to reach an agreement with Kotoko with regards to the payment have proved futile.
“I have made attempts to the administration of the club in order to get the money. I even have the text messages on my phone. This new administration also knows about it.
“We even went to pre trial for amicable resolution. In this first meeting, their lawyer did not turn up. In the second trial, a representative from the club came and requested for time,since a committee had been set up then over the accident.
“Afterwards they promised to pay,but never did, and its being over four years now”, he told Accra based Angel FM’s Saddick Adams.
Asante Kotoko team bus was involved in an accident in 2017.
