Serbian coach Kosta Papic has arrived in the country to take charge of Accra Hearts of Oak and he is present at the stadium in Sunday night's match against Inter Allies.

The gaffer who is coming for his second stint with the Ghanaian giants was spotted in the company of in-coming Hearts of Oak CEO Sowah Odotei ahead of the match at the Accra Stadium.

This shows as predicted earlier in the day that Papic will be unveiled as the club’s new Technical Director on Monday as terms of his contract have been agreed.

Hearts of Oak, with the ongoing construction of its new training centre at Pobiman are in need of a Technical Director to streamline the club's activities on and off the field.

The Phobians earlier on in the season appointed Carlos Manuel Vaz Pinto for the Technical Director job but had to parts with the Portuguese just eight days after his appointment.

With the role still vacant, Hearts have settled on Kosta Papic who handled the side in the 2008/09 season.

The 60-year old is expected to arrive in Accra tomorrow morning via Ethiopia airlines to begin his new job.

The Serbian has been unattached after his contract expiration with the senior national team of eSwatini.

Kosta Papic has worked with several clubs across the African continent thus has enough experience on the field.

He worked with some clubs such as Lobi Stars, Enyimba FC, Enugu Rangers, Maritzburg United, Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs, Young Africans SC, Chippa United, Black Leopards and Polokwane City.

He is expected to provide some support to the technical team led by Coach Edward Nii Odoom and deputy Asare Bediako.
