Asante Kotoko Coach, Steven Polack could not hide his excitement after his side shattered their arch rivals Accra Hearts of Oak in the 2017 MTN FA Cup with a stunning 3-1.
First Half hat-trick from striker Saddick Adams was enough for the Kumasi lads to bury their Phobian rivals.
Hearts came back strongly in the second half but their efforts could only earn them a consolation goal courtesy Thomas Abbey.
In a post-match interview, Polack was full of praise for his Kotoko players.
“Cup finals is a one-off game and I’m very proud of my players especially with their good attitude, it’s has been like that since I have been here and in training, this week and they brought it into the game and I think we deserved to win this game.
“I’m satisfied with the way things have ended this season, it could have been better but to finish this season with a trophy am really happy about that and I think we deserve it,” Pollack concluded.
This is his maiden trophy as a coach in Ghana after stints with King Faisal and Berekum Chelsea.
With this triumph, Kotoko will be the representative for Ghana in next season’s CAF Confederation Cup as Aduana Stars who also won the Ghana Premier League fight for a place in the CAF Champions League.
In addition to the giant MTN trophy, the porcupine Warrios were given cash of GHc 50,000 plus another GHc 100,000 to support them in their African Confederation quest.
