Kosta Papic leads Hearts of Oak training

Ghana Premier League side, Hearts of Oak, have parted company with head coach Kosta Papic and goalkeepers’ trainer Ben Owu.

Adomonline.com on Monday confirmed that coach Papic had tendered in his resignation letter due to ‘unhappiness’ after just three months in charge.

The Serbian trainer returned to the club in November 2020 to replace Edward Nii Odoom.

In a statement issued today, February 16, 2021, Hearts of Oak said that they have accepted resignation letters from both coach Papic and Mr Owu.

According to the club, coach Papic resigned due to ‘personal reasons’ and not because of clashes with management as widely reported.
