Milovan Rajevac has been unveiled as head coach of the senior national team of Ghana following the sacking of Charles Kwabena Akonnor.
Rajevac has come back to Ghana on a $30,000-a-month deal, according to Ghana Football Association General Secretary, Prosper Harrison Addo esq, eleven years after he departed following a successful first spell in charge of the Black Stars.
The 67 -year-old guided the Black Stars to the quarter finals – Ghana’s best performance yet – at the FIFA World Cup in South Africa in 2010, he also led the Stars to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations that same year where Ghana lost by a lone goal to Egypt in Angola and later departed in November, 2010.
In the previous year, he coached the home-based Black Stars B side to 2009 African Nations Championship (CHAN) final, and lost to 2-0 to DR Congo.
The Serbian is believed to be a man who commands respect and one who has a grip on the dressing room.
At a press briefing to unveil him, Milovan said through his interpreter: “I’m ready to share ideas with management on call ups to the national team but when it comes to the final decision, I will be the one to do that.”
His last job was with the Thailand national team in 2019.
