Head coach Kosta Papic, Ben Owu resign from Hearts of Oak

The Accra Hearts of Oak has officially confirmed that they have parted ways with head coach Kosta Papic and goalkeepers’ trainer Ben Owu.

According to reports earlier on last week on Monday, Papic, after a marathon meeting with the management of the club, left his role as head coach of the club.

Hearts of Oak, in a statement issued on February 16, 2021, said that they have accepted resignation letters from both Papic and Owu.

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

“Accra Hearts of Oak SC has parted company with head coach Kostadin Papic and goalkeepers’ trainer Ben Owu.

“Both members of the technical team tendered in their resignations on February 15, 2021” parts of the statement read.

The club also expressed appreciation to the two coaches for their service to the club.

“The club would like to thank Papic and Ben for their time at Hearts of Oak and wish them success in their future”.

The exit of the two brings to three the number of coaches who have left the club in less than a week.

Last week, assistant coach Asare Bediako also resigned. The club initially denied the report only for Papic to confirm it an interview.
