Kostadin Papic could be nearing a return to Black Leopards, following the departure of Major David Bright from the NFD club.
Papic is currently unattached, having parted ways with Polokwane City two weeks ago.
Sources close to Leopards have linked the Serbian with a return to the club, as revealed by the Siya crew when he parted ways with Polokwane.
With Leopards with no head coach at the moment and struggling to pick up good results, it is believed that Papic could be the man to rescue their situation.
Papic guided Leopards to the PSL’s promotion/relegation playoffs during his previous spell with the club at the end of the 2013/14 season.
The former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs coach has also been linked with the University of Pretoria, should the Tshwane outfit need to replace Sammy Troughton from his head coaching position in the future.
