Kosta Papic steps down as Hearts of Oak head coach

Hearts of Oak head coach, Kosta Papic, has resigned from his role after just two months in charge.

The 60-year-old made this known to the club at a lengthy board meeting on Monday, February 15, 2021.

The Serbian trainer replaced Edward Odoom in November 2020 for a second spell and led the Phobians in 10 matches in the ongoing Ghana Premier League, where he won four, drew three and lost three.

Papic cited personal reasons for his decision and turned down several pleas from board members on Monday to stay.

His assistant, Joseph Asare Bediako, resigned earlier on February 10 from his post, citing circumstances beyond his control.

The team’s physical trainer conducted the club’s training session today. Hearts of Oak must look for a new head coach to take charge of the first-team coaching duties.

They lie 11th on the league log with 17 points, playing 13 matches. One less the 14 played so far because of the postponement of their week 14 game against Asante Kotoko.
