Ghana coach keen on staying with Black Stars - agent

Published on: 09 July 2010

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac is keen on staying to continue his “vision for the Black Stars” despite several offers from clubs and countries, his agent has revealed.

This is the first hint that the Serbian manager wants to stay to coach Ghana since their participation in the World Cup ended last week.

Rajevac has become one of the most sought after coaches in the world after leading the less-fancied West Africans to reach the quarter finals of the World Cup.

Qatari side Al Sadd has made a huge offer and several others clubs from Russia, Belgium and France have all made contacts to sign the coach whose contract with Ghana ends next month.

Struggling Nigeria, who are overhauling their football are also keen for Rajevac to lead their revolution, while star-studded Ivory Coast are also believed to be interested in him.

But the Serbian coach’s agent Goran Milovanovic insists that the Black Stars remain first priority as he wants to continue to work in the country he loves.

“It is the truth that coach Milo has had several offers right across the world but he has refused to talk to anyone because of Ghana,” Milovanovic told Ghanasoccernet.com.

“Coach has real love for Ghana and wants to continue his vision for the country so that football in the whole country can grow and challenge the established world team like Brazil, Argentina, Germany and the rest.

“His contract expires at the end of August but because he wants to stay he will not talk to any country or clubs who have approached him and only wants to talk to the Ghana FA.

“He is a man of integrity and wants to continue the work he has started with Ghana. His work is there for all to see and wants to continue to grow in a country he loves. He is now a Ghanaian.”

With the lucrative offers for the Serbian coach, his agent says Rajevac money won’t be his consideration when negotiating the new deal with Ghana.

“I don’t think there is a major stumbling block we just have to sit down in two weeks’ time and agree on the details of the new contract,” the agent said.

“Money won’t be the consideration as job satisfaction is his priority otherwise he would have gone somewhere else. We will sit down with the Ghana FA and reach a fair deal.”

Rajevac, during his stay as Ghana coach, helped the Black Stars to qualify for the ongoing World Cup with cheeky ease, even with two matches to spare – the first time in the country’s history.

In his first year he guided the local Black Stars to reach the final of the African Nations Champions (CHAN). Earlier this year Rajevac, missing eight key players, guided a youthful Black Stars team to win silver behind the mighty Egypt at the Angola Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

At the World Cup proper, which is ongoing, he has also guided the Black Stars to equal Cameroon and Senegal's record by becoming the third African country to reach the quarter finals.

Rajevac is among the lowest earning coaches at the World Cup and despite his low salary as compared to other coaches he was able to steer the Black Stars to the last eight.

Coaches like Fabio Capello of England, Marcello Lippi of Italy, Javier Aguirre of Mexico, Ivory Coast’s Sven Goran Eriksson and Lars Lagerback of Nigeria who earn millions and have star players bombed out in early in the tournament in South Africa.

    I hope he stays. The players love him and that speaks volumes. If you try to create dissent within the ranks, he will throw you out. Ask Muntari.

    I hope he stays for continuity sake but Ghana have a battle on their hands keeping him. I still have a feeling his agent is being diplomatic and coy about the future of the coach. It appears others seem more appreciative of his efforts than some misguided Ghanaians who seem to hate him for no other reason than Xenophobism.

    i think technically, the coach, is very good, his strategy, was fine, the players adopted very well, some of the players could not fit well into his game plan, but i believe if he learn to speak English, he would be wonderful and best coach, Ghana has ever had if he stays,Again he should also keep his eyes on the local guys to encourage them.

I still dont understand whay they think the Black man(Ghanaian) cant coach his fellow black people ... i wonder if the player being born by black men were raised by white fathers... i dislike this coach because he is white and i hate the GFA b'cos they are still putting US under slavery ....it is mad how you can give a white interpreter $10,000 for just interpretation and give ur fellow black man $3,000 dollars as an assistant coach ....this is mad... Kwasi Nyantakyi ....i dont think you are a real Akan cos we Akan are not like that ....and that swollen belly Randy is full of Sh*t ...all he knows is Politics...damn i hate these guyz

    Please spear me that okay, why can't the black man manage his own affairs please why its that, we like moving with white coaches whiles we can give our own country men the benefit of dought to work and even maintain the money in our country then giving it away to someone who even dont pay any tax in the country and he's been paid 50,000 euros, and the one who pay tax takes only $7,000. why are we maltreating our own country men GFA why this. Lets give the team to our own people, they can do it better than the white men, who took the U20 team to the world cup? ist white or black? if not they will keep on spending our money without providing what we want. "Ghana people we for shine our eye ooooooo, no be so this white people go spend the money all, nothing go come oooooooo Ghana Ghaana".

    My goodness it 2010 and we are still crying about colour...Can we please grow up. The man was one of the lowest paid coaches at the world cup and he is willing to stay. For me that kind of generosity and humility is truly Ghanaian isn't that what our people are about...Milovan may be white on the outside but by knocking out serbia in the world cup he has shown his heart belongs to Ghana.I am currently staying in South Africa and everyone who has visited our beautiful country has fallen in love with its people....So perhaps the same has happened to Milo.And by 2014 milo will definatley be fluent in english and twi...And too all the haters prepare to eat your words in the Afcon 2012 because that is when we pick up our fifth title and before 2014 we will equal egypts record...

    Whether it is a white or serb he must not be retained. What is our Independence for, if we can not even groom one of our own to coach us to play football? Is it any wonder Ghana is making no progress in all endeavours? The lack of self-confidence in ourselves, in-security and being afraid to make a mistakes has blinded us to see no good in among ourselves hence always looking outside for an expertise. Imagine our current learned men and women in power signing a deal of 10 Billion Dollars with S.Korea to build us a house with the neglect of local expertise. Brazil has always used his own home-grown coaches and has been successful, so please, let's at least be the first sub-Saharan nation to emulate the experiences of Brazil, USA, Netherlands, Germany and Spain to pave the way for the rest of Africa

Please give us a break and leave the Black stars coaching job out of this. We had many local coaches in the past and you same people crucified them. If you want a black man, local, or what ever coach please ask them to apply for the job!!!

    oh dear oh dear. Looks like a few of us forumers have taken a backward step in regards to skin colour and ability. Milo has achieved what no home grown coach has ever done, got us to the top eight in a world cup. I cannot remember a home grown coach that managed to achieve that. But still we are ungrateful and fixated on the colour of our coaches skin and the nationality on his passport.

    Sallas Tetteh took the U20 to the world cup tournament and they worn the world cup. which i was very proud off, and hope you did too. I was brought to America when i was very little, and i've been living here for the past 20yrs. one thing i've realise is that, God has bless the we blacks with soo much but we intend seem to overlook all those blessings. we always disrespect what we have, and always eye on someone elses.But there is one thing i can tell you, that if Sellas was an American, he would have been a hero. The whole country will support him and give him what ever he need to suceed. I was surprise to see most of our black star players played in the U20 tournament, so known what makes you think our own cannot take us to the promise land. The money we spending on this guy and his interpreter makes my stomack sick, cuz this money can be used to support our own and make them better. Is a shame that after all our independence we still have this colonial minds that we still not good enough.

    Ghana is now abound in football talents. There is money in football. Gone are the days when our Mothers will whip us for going out to play football. This is not the case now. The youth are now eager to play football and die for Ghana. There are so many talents in Ghana now that making selection into the BS is even very problematic. Any serious coach can do well with Ghana. Milo has done his part just as Duya also did his part in 2006 but the fact is that none of these foreign has ever won any cup fopr Ghana. Winning the cup is the ultimate but if a coach cannot win cups then why use him. Listen 'Milo is paid $45,000, his interpreter is paid $10,000 but the assistant coach- a black man is paid $3000'. How much was Selas being paid when he won the U20 World cup. Ghana can continue to deal in foreign coaches and pay huge monies but ppl should know that the ultimate will always elude them. This is the problem with African football

    Sellas can always be brought back, it's only a matter of paying compensation to Rwanda. The price of compensation would be minimal in comparison to winning the World Cup. Even reaching the quarter-finals fetched Ghana $14 Million

    Coach Milo will stay if negotiation with GFA goes well with him. Ghana needs him for these reasons: 1) " don't change a winning team " 2) he has planted dedication, loyalty, teamwork and technical discipline and we must allow them to grow. he is doing away with personality cult. 3) he is cheaper than other coaches 4) for the sake of continuity: we must be prepared for qualifiers, CAF 2012 Gabon, CAF 2013 Libya and FIFA 2014 Brasil. we need consistency for both technical team and Gfa administration. 5) he pays attention to advise. Not only Gfa officials advised him but stephen Appiah and John Mensah begged him to let Muntari stay. He listened and Ghana did not become like France. Coach Milo, please stay b'cos JAH ALMIGHTY HAS BLESSED GHANA.

    TEXAS,keith from germany and Kenneth County WHY DO YOU GUYS LIKE MILO SO MUCH?
  • Brontortor!!!
    says: 9 years ago
    Why are we all beating about the bush and getting all emotional? Let's slow down and look at a few points. 1) Milo helped Ghana to CHAN and CAN finals. 2) He's the only coach in history to take Ghana to the quarter finals of a world cup. The first achievement, to me, is not even an achievement because Ghana has won the African cup 4 times with local players and coaches. Substituting a striker for a defender in the dieing minutes of a CAN final when you're a goal down completely baffles me. This crop of players could have beat Germany, they could have beat the Australia, they could have beat Uruguay convincingly. Secondly, we haven't given a local coach the chance to take our boys to the world cup, so how on earth would any local coach be able to achieve the 2nd achievement? So hailing Milo like he's a Messiah really is confusing to me. We are grateful that he's done well, he's done his job and we thank him very much, but he's not great coach, that much I can say. It's not like he took a pay cut to work for Ghana. Ghana has made him, and Ghana has been of greater service to him that he has been to Ghana. Ghana has improved his resume tremendously. Before the African cup who knew him? Now his agent claims all these countries want his signature. What does that mean? Him working for Ghana is the best thing that has happened to his career. Now let's not get hung up on salary and all this stuff, money is not really that important. If we're going to stick with foreign coaches, I'd like to see some world cup winning coaches, some championship winning coaches. If Parreira could take a South African team that hasn't made it to several African cups in recent years, and guide them to the showing that they put up at the world cup, imagine what he could achieve with such solid Ghanaian players. Ghana is becoming a force in world football, Let's get a coach that can take us all the way, and get some Ghanaian assistants to help, so that they learn from him. That way if he's paid 100,000 and they're paid 3,000 they know they're students and can also take the helm of affairs in the near future. Let's go for the best and get them to train what we have. Let's think ahead. **This is my opinion, and I respect it.**

    To brother Access, before answer I your question, I think it will be fair to ask "Why do you hate Milo so much". Buddy, it is not a question of somebody liking someone so much. It is a case of telling the truth; making sure obectivity, common sense, impartiality prevails and constructive criticism instead of destructive criticism becomes the norm. Well if you want the view from a neutral point, he has outsmarted and outdone most of the so-called celebrated coaches; Marcello Lippi; Fabio Capello; Sven Goran Erickson; Diego Maradona; ;Lars Lagerbeck; Otto Reighal; Otto Hitzmal; Raymond Domenech; Carlos Alberto Perriara. These guys are paid Big Bucks compared to what he receives. That's why I am looking forward to the new local coach who is coming in to "save" Ghana football. Perhaps you may be able judge whether Milo is good or not by comparing the efforts of the new local coach and that of his predecessor.

    Milo can never leave Ghana because he can never have great success with any other team but Ghana. Ghana abounds in talents and any great coach of the caliber of Hiddink, Mourinho, etc, could use Ghana to win the world cup. If Milo was excellent in his substitutions---using Abeyie when needed, playing Tagoe as a power forward, plugging Derek Boateng as an offensive midfielder, bringing in Ahorlu for Kingston before the penalty kicks, etc., Ghana would have been in the finals by now. Trust me, Milo could leave and make more money but he isn't after money but after fame, because once he gets famous, he can leave and get into any top coaching job whenever - so Ghana is just a spring board! Nowadays, who remembers Bruno Metsu, Doya, etc? Some of these coaches were/are unknowns but used talented teams and nations to make their name---but once they went after money, what happened? Caput! They are all missing in action! Henry Kasperjack once declared, "give me Ghana and I shall give you the world cup"! Why do you think Marcel Desailly et al all want to coach the Ghana team, why? Simple---play the players in their natural roles according to your system, and you shall triumph. Milo's problem was this: play the players in wrong positions to suit your game plan,...and that's where and why he lost some games and couldn't score plenty! His timing and substitutions always wrecked havoc, and once we went down by a goal first, we were finished. The issue here is not about color or race, it's about why an interpreter of the coach earns more than the assistant coach! That is crap, it never happens anywhere...and its about time the GFA answered the public on this: WHY DOES MILO's interpreter earn more than the ASSISTANT COACH?!! Give the BLACK STARS to David Duncan or Herbert Addo....even Bashir Hayford or Mohammed Polo/ Abdul Razak and you shall see wonders! GFA, please, eschew corruption and motivate local coaches and you shall see them perform OR ....give all the junior teams --- U-16, 17, 19, 20, 23 and the female team too --- give all to expatriates. Damn! Why give the senior team to expatriates after they have been groomed by local coaches at the junior levels! So these whites reap where they have not sown! Show me one player that Milo has discovered? Africa....it will take us 200 years to be wise! Damn!

    Right on Bro. Access. It is true you are one of the few sensible people who I think criticise constructively. That's why I like having dialogue with you. But there are certain times when you go over the top and also make contradictory statements. Correct me if I am wrong but I recall you even suggesting Milo step down and Kwasia Appiah take over during the tournament. I hope I meet you some day, brother. Then you will get to know me more. I believe strongly in human rights; fair play and equal treatment to all and sundry. In my life wherever and whenever these issues arise, I do not hesitate to get involved. If you would be honest, I have been saying all along that like any other human being, the coach is not perfect and make mistakes sometimes. But that doesn't mean criticism, criticism and criticism for criticism sake. I think praise should also be given and acknowledged when it is due. That's the cornerstone for developing civilised human values. I hope U get me my brother.

    MILO MUST. 1. He is not english speaking 2. He knows nothing about African discipline and culture 3. He has won no gold in any of the tournaments he has been in charge 4. We don't want a worst situation of conflict to happen when we meet Serbia next time 5. He does not know how to make tactical substitutions-we saw that in AFCON and FIFA 10 6. He claims to have strict discipline, but cannot be his own man without GFA telling him to do, or Ghana paying an interpretor to give his team "Second hand" directions from him. Can't we see the trap next time we meet his country, let's say this time in the Semi-Final. /he will pull Gyan, Essien etc out to make sure Serbia wins. We are wiser than that 7. We have enough Ghanaians, Silas, Marcelli, Abedi, Akornor etc, who will do a better job than Serbian Milo. After all where does Milo get its source? Cocoa - and that is Ghana!!! 8. Trully, football depends on luck. And we need someone to have the faith in God we have, so that we can agree on good fortunes to God/Allah. This man is not a God man. He is a Gypsie, and unbeliever. He can he be touching our anointed Black Stars? This is why God made us loose to a cheating and poorer team. I even hear he brought (or wanted to bring) some of his Serbian prostitute healers to our camp in SA. AAAHHHHH 9. This story is a deception. If he has better offers, let him GO. GOOD RIDDANCE!!! 10. God wants us to rethink. It is Him who give Ghana gold, not the whiteman. Let's use what we have - We can get what we want or learn by losing. Can you imagine the promotion we would have given to a Ghanaian coach if he was the one handling Black Stars? Possibly, such a person will have used some of the money he gets to develop some part of Ghana, even if it were just one house he built! Let's wise up!!!

    thank you all for your comments, well Ghana was one of the team in the toughest Group , and the coach did well with his tactics , at least a team from our group is in the last 4 team , which is credit and wonderful performance from the boys and their coach , i don't , people are saying all sorts of trash here which i don't think is fair , well not that i m against black coach but they should learn , they should not expert Ghana to spend their money on them for coaching course , is their chosen profession , so they have to invest into that and there is no way if they are performing and not taking bribe as they use to do before , we will not give them the Job , Kwasi Appiah is learning under coach Milo but he should do extra professional coaching course so that in the near future he can earn 20,000 usd or more even if Ghana thus not pick him other African country will surely if you are performing well in his profession, as for now we have to give Milo the chance to go for another tenure, as there is a saying that some one who climbs good tree needs to be pushed , folks stop envying the coach and and let him have time for his work

    yaws i seconds you in some ways but, Sellas should better thank GHANA for giving him the platform to perform, he should try to enhance his Cv with other coaching courses as other white coaches does but, every human beings have potentiality and if we are all given opportunity and support we can help mother Ghana, but the leaders are not interested in that , so we give work to some one who have his qualification already , Ghanaian love the game so we can not Gamble our heart to any black coach who will be taking bribes , just for self interest, and greed , and he will not acts professionally like how our referee have been doing , Africa learn how to die for your country than thinking about your stomach only , that has leads blacks to fall and if we don't change our ways we will never achieve result as others have been .

    all those making noise about milo bieng a foreign coach and not speaking english, let me ask the following questions. plse answer sincerely: 1. how many of those your friends who travel to france,germany, japan, even libya know how to speak those languages before you boast about them that they are abraods. 2. why do all ghanaians not stay in ghana but keep going to other even more deplorable countries.

    sunshine a local coach will do tribalism by calling up players from his own tribe instead of selecting a player who is totally qualified for a place in the team. tribal identity could potentially blind a local coach to the extent of deplacing compotence as criterion for player selection for the national team in favour of a selection based on tribal identity,particularly selection of players from his own tribe. former nigeria local coach shaibu amodu was fond of doing this habit by calling players like yakubu ayigbeni,sani kaita,yussuf ayila, and yussuf mohammed eventhough chidia odiah is way better than this yussf mohammed,shaibu amodu played yussuf ahead of odiah becuz of tribalism. if a local coach has a special tie with a local team,the local coach will like to select players from there as sir cecil jones attoquayefio did by selecting hearts of oak players for the 2002 worldcup qualifier against nigeria at the then accra sports staduim. a local coach will tend to select players from the team he loves most instead of fair player selection based on compotence. a forieng coach who has no tribal background or native ties will select players according to their performances n committment as well as descipline. thus,it will be beneficialto retain milo in ghana. just look at the performance at our local coaches,they cant even qualify a local team to the group stages of the african champions league. a good coach like milo dropped muntari n gave dede ayew a chance and dede performed higly above expectation. can a local coach drop muntari for dede?a big no cuz he is s´cared of how muntari will slap him. milo has frmed our team to be a very strong competitive team.nobody is talking about ivorycoast n cameroon anymore cuz hana is now the number 1 on the african football map becuz of milo. sunshine be wise n stop calling for milo's exit.u can do better than that.

    I am surprise about the ineptitude of our leaders and their lack of analytical acumen by Ghanaians. Why is that coaches are sack even when they reach quarter finals in WC, and others are maintained even when the failed to do so ? The so called tactician has reach quarter finals , why dont we assess our game play and see how efficient he was as a coach than just the quarter finals. Do we had the potential to have gone further, what about his ability to develop talents, to read games and make changes. These are the reasons why coaches are changed or maintained. This lucky gambler is will not honor better offers because he is afraid of failure. I tell you this idiot is just a lucky gambler who has ride on the ingenuity of our boys and an unbelievable luck. If we were to look at our games and asses him based on his changes, his ability to read the games and the likes. It is clear that this guy lack so many qualities to be allowed to stay. Since when did he love Ghana? His native Serbia were eliminated in first round, don’t they need their so called illustrious son who narrowly missed the semi final. Y are they not chasing after him but Qatar and equally naive African countries Think Ghanaians, this are conspiracy for the GFA to steal. What is the essence of the salary of coaches publications
