Hearts of Oak part ways with Papic


Hearts of Oak have confirmed the departure of head coach Kostadin Papic with immediate effect.

Papic tendered his resignation on Monday, 15 February 2021.

The Serbian mentor has been in charge of the club for only three months. He took over the coaching reigns in November 2020.

This was Papic’s second stint with the Phobians, having coached the club in 2009.

The 60-year-old resignation letter reads: “My reasons are partly personal, also for the fact that I am not getting the desired and needed results and I have no hope that it’s going to change.”

According to reports, the former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs coach has undergone a COVID-19 test and waiting to fly to South Africa.

The Ghanian giants and Papic have both acknowledged that the current results have not met the expectations they have agreed on.

“We would like to thank Papic for the time at Hearts of Oak and wish him success in his future endeavours,” said the club in a press release.

In the meantime, the club’s U-15 coach Samuel Nii Noi will take over as the interim until the new head coach is appointed.
