Serbian trainer Kosta Papic was introduced to the playing body of capital based heavyweights Hearts of Oak, following his announcement as head coach of the club.

The 60-year-old tactician returns to the capital-based club eleven years after leading them to the 2008/09 Ghana Premier League title during his one-year stint with the club.

He was handed the Phobian hot seat on Monday on the back of a meeting between the club’s Board Chairman, Togbe Afede XIV, and outgoing Member of Parliament for La Dadekotopon, Vincent Sowah Odotei, however, details of his contract are not available yet.

Prior to his appointment, Coach Edward Nii Odoom, had been steering the Phobian wheel following the sack of ex-Ghana international Kim Grant in December last year, but it appears he has been demoted to handle the youth side of the club, Auroras, with immediate effect.

Meanwhile Kosta Papic will be assisted by former Berekum Chelsea gaffer Joseph Asare Bediako.

The Serbian was spotted at the Accra Sports stadium on Sunday when Hearts lost 0-1 to Inter Allies.

The Serbian trainer’s first assignment will be to lead the Phobians, who have tasted a loss and a draw in the domestic league, against league leaders Karela United on match day four of the Ghanaian topflight on Friday.

Papic has previously managed Young Africans of Tanzania, South African sides Black Leopards, Chippa United, Polokwane City and Royal Eagles.
