Coach of Asante Kotoko, Steve Polack believes the club is one of the ‘biggest’ in Ghana, and does not see any coach rejecting the chance to manage the side.

Polack was confirmed as coach of the Porcupine Warriors earlier this month after Frimpong Manso – who was temporarily put in charge – was dismissed for failing to lead the club out of its slump.

The Englishman enjoyed a favourable spell with Berekum Chelsea before joining Kotoko, and he believes serving the as coach of the Porcupine Warriors is a one-time opportunity that no coach would miss.

Polack told Light FM: “You don't say no to a big club like Kotoko. It could be a one-time life opportunity to coach the club. There will be no coach who will say no Kotoko and even top players due to their prestige in the world.”

The 56-year-old also revealed that he had always dreamed of coaching Kotoko, adding that “it was something I looked up to and so when they contacted me for the job, I couldn't say no to them considering their pedigree in Ghana.”

Kotoko had not won in any of their last seven matches prior to Polack’s arrival, however, the former Berekum Chelsea boss recorded  his first win when the Porcupine Warriors defeated Proud United in the FA Cup last week.
