Milovan Rajevac re-appointed as Black Stars coach

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.
