Former Hearts of Oak player Francis Bossman is applauding the club for naming Kosta Papic as their new trainer.
The 60-year-old was appointed Tuesday after a run of poor results in this season’s Ghana Premier League by Edward Odoom.
Hearts have failed to win their first two matches; a 2-2 draw against Ashantigold was followed by a shocking 1-0 defeat to Inter Allies last Sunday.
Bossman asserts that the Phobians will produce results under the Serbian’s spell.
“[Kosta] Papic is a good coach and I hope that he gets good results just like he did during our time.”
“His tactics are good and he is very friendly with all players,” Bossman remarked on Happy FM.
Kosta Papic helped the Hearts claim their last league title in the 2008/09 season along with Francis Bossman in charge of the midfield.
Papic moved on to handle several other clubs in Africa.
He had stints at Young Africans of Tanzania, South African sides Black Leopards, Chippa United, Polokwane City and Royal Eagles.
In December 2018, the Serbian was appointed national coach of eSwatini (formerly known as Swaziland) and left a year later.
Kosta Papic begins his second spell with a league game against Karela United at the Accra Sports Stadium.
