The 60-year-old is said to be unhappy with Hearts of Oak’s board of directors. He rejoined the Phobians as a replacement for Edward Nii Odoom after just eight matches of the 2020/21 Ghana Premier League season. He left the club in the middle of the season in 2008 citing managerial interference.
The former Orlando Pirates coach was in charge of the Phobians for 10 games. His most memorable game was the 6-1 victory against then table-toppers, Bechem United.
Papic has rich coaching experience in Africa, working with clubs in South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria and Tanzania. Assistant coach Asare Bediako also left the club recently.
