Coach Nebojsa Vucicevic has parted ways with Hearts of Oak, GHANAsoccernet.com can confirm.

The Serbian trainer who has come under immense pressure for the team's poor run of results in the second round of the Premier League leaves by mutual consent after meeting with the club's top hierarchy on Friday.

The decision to terminate Vucicevic's contract according to Hearts CEO Fred Crentsil was in response to the recent agitation by fans who made it clear they wanted the 49-year-old gone.

"We have parted ways with the coach (Vucicevic) by mutual consent,"  Crentsil told GHANAsoccernet.com.

"There have been some agitations of late and we believe the decision reached is in the best interest of the club."

The former FK Srem manager was appointed Hearts' coach in February 2011 after talks with compatriot Dragan Popadic broke down.

He had one year left on his reported US$ 5,400 a month deal.

Assistant coach Shaibu Tanko will take interim charge of the team until a substantive is appointed.

Hearts are currently second on the Glo Premier League log nine points behind rivals Asante Kotoko with eleven matches to go.
