I will support Milovan Rajevac's return to the Black Stars - Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyie

Milovan Rajevac could be returning to the Black Stars fold

Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi says he will support the decision to bring in Milovan Rajevac as a technical support for coach Kwesi Appiah for the 2014 World Cup.

The Black Stars trainer is said to have asked his former boss to play an advisory role as Ghana makes a third successive appearance at the World Cup in Brazil.

Rajevac has been quoted in a Serbian newspaper that he is considering the offer to be part of a technical support team for coach Kwesi Appiah for the tournament in Brazil.

The Serbian trainer visited his former team in the lead up to Wednesday's friendly against Montenegro and was also in the stands to see the game played in Podgorica.

Some Ghanaians have kicked against the possible return of the Serbian tactician to the Black Stars fold.

But Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi says he will endorse such a move ones coach Appiah makes his reported intention official to the association.

"We all know the pedigree of Rajevac in football and therefore I will support the decision to include him in Ghana's back room staff for the World Cup," Nyantakyie told Kumasi-based Kessben FM.

"It may be that the coach [Kwesi Appiah] has had discussions with him [Rajevac] but Kwesi Appiah has not told me anything of the sort.

"I am in support of any decision from the coach to improve his technical team ones the person coming in is competent enough and ready to work for our success at the World Cup.

"And therefore the focus shouldn't be that it is Milovan Rajevac but then what we can do to support the coach excel at the World Cup."

Rajevac remains very popular amongst many Ghanaians due to his impressive work with the Black Stars during his two-year reign from 2008.

The Serbian coach who is currently unemployed led Ghana to the finals of the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations and almost guided the side to a historic semi final finish at the World Cup months later in South Africa.

    Hahahaha! You and who know what pedigree? Just make sure you are not the one setting this agenda. As for AA I will be much disappointed in him if he is the one seeking the services of Rajevac . Why can’t we progress in anything? We always seem to be moving one step forward and two steps backwards. You are ready to support any one competent? And you think Rajavac is competent enough? If he were competent enough he wouldn’t have been sacked! He is popular among which Ghanaians? May be he is popular to your wife, children and yourself because you took bribe from him to take care of them. Oh God what have we done to always deserve all these visionless leaders in whatever we do. Please, God take it out from us if it is a curse. This man is always setting up agenda for his selfish interest so that he can get his percentage without taking the good people of Ghana into consideration.

    The time to look at the bigger picture is nigh, please don't blame Appiah cos Brazil 2014 will be tough especially for African teams. No egoistic tendencies here, we need ideas to overcome all odds and win our first match because if we fail to do so our dreams will fade and grow cold as ice. Let's emphasize the positives that Milo will bring to the team and bring him on board. A decision, a good one has already been taken. Go Ghana Go!

    Blow I agree with you on this. Many have expressed their displeasure at the decision to let Milo return but have failed to give alternative ideas.We have to look at the bigger picture now. There is no better idea than having the last coach who helped you to the quarter finals of the last edition giving you certain technical support. If we put the game against USA into perspective, we would realise that Milo has a lot to offer in order for us to beat them. I personally welcome the idea.

    Why is Ghana kissing up to this Milo guy? The man walked out and would not even return the GFA's phone call. He showed you no respect and you are now running after him, begging him to come do what? For your information, Milo is out there trying to get Benin's coaching job. He is once again asking more than what Benin says can afford. Ghana is not his priority, especially not coming in as the headcoach. BTW, I won't be surprised if the GFA pays him more than they pay Akwasi Appiah for Milo to 'advise' Appiah!
