Hearts of Oak have denied media reports trainer Nebojsa Vucicevic has quit the club due to ill health.

The Serbian trainer has left for his homeland after complaining of contracting recurrent diseases any time he touched base from the East European country.

It has been hugely speculated that he is unhappy with the current situation and is tossing with the idea of quitting the club.

But the club have moved to rubbish the reports insisting he is committed to the club.

"We have heard some of the reports but I should place it on record that there is no iota of truth in it," the club's spokesperson Albert Commey said.

"It's true that he complained of malaria problems but that is far from what I have been hearing people say.

''He asked permission to go back home and treat himself and so fans should be rest assured he will return to continue with where he left off.''

Despite the explanation from the club, the local media insist the coach will not return.

Vucicevic guided the capital-based side to third place during the first half of the Ghana Premier League.
