Former Hearts of Oak coach Kosta Papic has decided to keep mute over allegations levelled up against him by the club's top hierarchy.

Responding to the allegations levelled up against him, the Serbian coach said, "I'm not going to criticise anybody. To respond to that, I'm just going to move on. Yah, I'm going to take it like that," .

"I don't want to respond to anybody because the things that have happened between the club, the players and me, are supposed to remain in the club. Not in public. We agreed to resign because of that issue of what I said.

"I submitted my resignation, they accepted my resignation and they make me free. I'm not going to respond to what the press say because nobody actually got an interview from me [about the accusations] except you now."

Papic revealed that Black Leopards approached him if he wanted to return to the club, he accepted negotiations started while he was with Hearts of Oak as head coach.

"It's Black Leopards who approached me, I don't know whether they had seen in the websites or something that there was some small problem in Ghana. They asked me, 'Do you want to come back?' I said yes and then we started to talk about that, and we waited for everything to happen in Ghana, and when that happened, I came back, told

Papic resigned on 15 February 2021 stating that he decided to step down as Hearts of Oak coach because of interference in his job by the club's top hierarchy.

He was appointed the technical director of Black Leopard four days time after his resignation.
