Coaching career

Previous clubs: Kaizer Chiefs, Maritzburg United, Orlando Pirates (all South Africa); Lobi Stars, Enyimba, Enugu Rangers, Kwara United (all Nigeria)

In December 2008 moved to Ghana and coached Accra Hearts of Oak SC and left the club on mutual consent after leading with 10 points and 7 games to finish the season due to what he termed managerial interference. He worked last as Head Coach by Accra Hearts of Oak SC up to July 2009. He is currently signed as Head Coach of Young Africans FC under a 2-year contract.

Kostadin Papić arrived in Dar es Salaam ready for his new job at Yanga football club. One of the coach's earliest experiences in his new setting will be the match against traditional rivals Simba on October 31. [1]


Papić set up a youth academy in Randburg, South Africa with the aim of identifying and developing local talent. The academy has run into numerous operational problems and has left many players disgruntled after their investments weren't returned.


He is nicknamed "Bill Clinton" due to his striking resemblance to the former American president.
