Cape Town - Polokwane City have announced that Kosta Papic will remain their coach for next season after he was handed a new contract by the Premiership club.

Papic replaced Boebie Solomons at the helm back in September to oversee first-team duties for the 2014/15 campaign after Rise and Shine narrowly avoided relegation last term.

The Limpopo outfit were challenging for a top-eight place before the mid-season break, although they suffered a slump in the second half of the campaign to finish just four points above the bottom two in 12th place.

But despite a poor run-in which saw Papic's side loss five of their last six league matches, the Limpopo outfit have decided to stick with the Serbian.

However, there appears to be some confusion over the length of the new deal, with the club revealing that Papic has signed on for another 12 months, while the 54-year-old claims the agreement was twice as long.

A statement from City's official website read:  "The club has renewed the contract with Papic which means he will remain with the team until June 2016."
