Steve Polack Ready To Quit Asante Kotoko Should They Ever Bribe A Referee

Asante Kotoko coach Steve Polack has promised to walk away from the club if he gets a hint of bribery and corruption within the club.

The Porcupine Warriors have been under the spotlight lately after they were awarded four penalties during their 1-0 victory over Congolese side CARA Club in the first leg of the preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium last Sunday.

Many have pointed fingers to the club for bribing Senegalese referee Issah Sy, who officiated the game, however, coach Polack has since debunked those claims, describing the accusations as appalling, and vowed to tender in his resignation should the club be implicated in corrupt activity.

“I looked at their coach and he was looking at me as if I was the one giving the penalties. But I am not a referee and I think it’s a disgrace for anyone to say I bribed the referee,” he said.

“Don’t say that I bribed the referee because I would never do that.”

“No club I have managed has ever bribed a referee, and if I get word of any such activity I will walk, and I don’t care how big the club is because I don’t want to be involved in such things.”

Polack extended his contract with the Porcupine Warriors in November after leading them to MTN FA Cup triumph last season.
