Top four Finish and the FA cup would mark a good season - Steven Polack

Posted on: Wed Oct 11, 2017 - Report by News Team

In a bid to sharpen his team's focus for the remainder of the season, Head coach, Steven Polack, has reiterated Kotoko's resolve to end the season on a high note.

Speaking with, Polack admitted that the club missed out on its foremost target of challenging for the Ghana Premier League title and hence his focus on finishing the season stronger with just two rounds of matches left to draw the curtain.

"It is quite obvious that finishing in the top three is not possible anymore but as a coach and for the players, we need to fetch a respectable position and that would have to be fourth," he said.

In a season that's, however, seen the Porcupine warriors mount a decent run in the 2017 MTN FA cup competition with a final berth to show for, Polack believes there's just enough more to fight for an "Okay season".

"Our mind is still on the league but the biggest thing we can win right now is the FA cup final and we need to be more focused on that," the coach said.

The prospect of writing an epic story for the season with a possible FA cup triumph is not lost on Polack and his players and the gaffer explains how he intends to achieve that:

"We need to be ready for the final. Hopefully in the two games before it, we can score a couple of goals for the needed confidence going into the final".

Having already won the President's Cup, Steven Polack is positive in his mind that a fourth place league finish and an FA cup win would mark a decent season for a club as Asante Kotoko's size.

"Would I be happy if that happened? Well, I would be for about a minute and then move on to focusing on what's up next for the following year. I'm not one who lives on his morals so we can only keep going in search of the next best thing," he stressed.

Kotoko hosts Berekum Chelsea at the Baba Yara next Sunday before a trip away to Liberty Professionals in Accra and will cap the season off with a clash against Hearts of Oak in the MTN

FA cup final on October 29
