Asante Kotoko injured coach Steve Pollack has hailed his charges for demonstrating bravery and technical brilliance when they hosted their perennial rivals-Hearts of Oak in Kumasi.
Kotoko managed a 1-1 draw after almost a month of inactivity due to a road accident that claimed an official’s life at Nkawkaw near Kumasi.
That shelved their impending game against Hearts of Oak scheduled for the weekend ahead of the tragic incident.
But Kotoko showed no sign of weakness when they did battle at the Baba Yara Stadium three days ago, and their head trainer, Pollack, who is still nursing injury has attributed his side’s quick recovery to his words of encouragement days before the game.
The Brit said after the Baba Yara clash “I’m happy with the attitude of the players and am proud of them, their attitude and desire, especially in the second half, was good. I’m proud to be
their manager and proud to be part of the Kotoko family.
“It was always going to be a difficult match but am happy we didn’t lose.”
