Croatian trainer Kosta Papic has explained why he resigned from his position as the head coach for Ghana Premier League side Accra Hearts of Oak.
The 60-year-old didn’t show up for training on Monday and has left his job as the head coach of the Phobians. He becomes the second person to quit his job within the Hearts technical set up following the resignation of Asare Bediako as the assistant coach last week.
The former African champions have been churning out unfavourable results in their recent games as huge pressure continue to mount on the Croat.
However, Papic reveals that, boardroom interference on his player selection is one of the reasons behind his decision to resign from the club.
“The influences from the management and Board in player selections will make every professional coach uncomfortable at Hearts of Oak,” Papic revealed to Accra-based Angel FM.
The former Chippa United manager was appointed in November 2020 for a second stint with the club having coached the Phobians in 2009. He replaced Edward Nii Odoom after just two matches into the 2020/2021 Ghana Premier League season.
Papic guided the Rainbow club in 10 matches in the Ghanaian premiership where he won four, drew three and lost three.
