Leopards Appoint Papic

Former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs coach Kostadin Papic is set to return to South Africa to take over at recently relegated Black Leopards.

Papic coached Orlando Pirates form 2004-2006 before enjoying a stint with Amakhosi in 2007 - after he had spent some time at Maritzburg United.

Since then he has coached in Ghana at Hearts of Oak as well as Young Africans in Tanzania.

The Siya crew can confirm that the coach has been handed a one-year deal at Lidoda Duvha with the option to renew for another.

A statement on Leopards' official website read, "Black Leopards are leaving no stone un turned inn an earnest effort to make a quick return to top flight football.

"We have shown our seriousness by signing the Serbian Kostadin Papic as new Head Coach of the team. He landed in South Africa on Wednesday (2013-06-12) afternoon and the deal was signed and sealed in the evening of the same day. Papic will be at 'Lidoda Duvha' for one season with an option to renew."

Club chairman David Thidiela added, "Life in the First division is tough and a coach of this magnitude does not come cheap. However, because we are an ambitious club and want to achieve, we had to go with the best."
