Milovan Rajevac Appointed As New Black Stars Head Coach
The Ghana Football Association have finally appointed Milovan Rajevac as the new head coach of the Ghana senior men’s national team.
The Serbian gaffer after the official announcement and unveiling at the GFA Headquarters today, has been handed a year deal with an option to extend should he qualify Ghana to the next FIFA World Cup and will earn $30,000 as salary. The 67 year old steps in for his second spell and will also serve as replacement to Charles Kwablan Akonnor who got jettisoned few weeks ago in what is dubbed as poor performance.
Milovan Rajevac is returning to the West African country for the second time having previously held the Black Stars for two years where he guided the team to the 2010 AFCON final but unfortunately lost to Egypt in Luanda. However, he achieved another milestone in Ghana football having qualified the team to the World Cup in the same year in South Africa, where they reached the quarter final becoming the third African country to achieve that task.
The Serbian gaffer is expected to assemble a redoubtable side for Ghanaians as they prepare for the qualifiers ahead and also the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations which will be staged early next year in Cameroon. His first task will be a double header against the Warriors of Zimbabwe next month in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
