Hearts of Oak confirm Kosta Papic’s departure; Nii Noi takes over


The Phobians are currently without a head coach after the Serbian manager surprisingly handed in his resignation letter on Monday

Ghana Premier League giants Hearts of Oak have confirmed the departure of coach Kostadian Papic and goalkeeping coach Ben Owu after hours of speculations in the local media.

Papic, who replaced Edward Nii Odoom in December, spent only 78 days in office and opted to mutually terminate his contract with the Phobians following constant disagreements with the club’s top hierarchy on issues.

The Serbian tactician had an enviable start with the Phobians as he picked four wins in his opening six games. However, he failed to win any of his last four league games leading to excessive pressure on him.

The club’s U-15 coach, Samuel Nii Noi will take charge in the interim until a new coach arrives in the future.

He becomes the third coach to manage the club this season
