Ghana's No. 1

Ghana FA to announce substantive Black Stars coach in coming days

Published on: 26 January 2022

Ghanasoccernet.com can exclusively report that the Ghana Football Association will announce a substantive Black Stars coach in the coming days after sacking Milovan Rajevac.

The Serbian trainer was sacked on Wednesday, a week after Black Stars were dumped out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations at the group stage.

They performed poorly, earning a point to finish bottom of Group C as Morocco, Gabon and Comoros progressed to the knockout stage.

Ghana's tournament concluded when they lost 3-2 to Comoros, making their Afcon debut and rated 132 by FIFA, and the furious reaction that preceded the dismal showing has forced the GFA to sack Rajevac.

"The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has decided to part ways with Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac," the GFA stated.

"This follows the receipt of the Technical Report from the Coach, the Medical Report and the Report from the Management Committee following Ghana’s early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 tournament."

"The Executive Council after considering the three reports and engagements with key stakeholders has decided to end its relationship with Coach Milovan Rajevac and also decided that the Black Stars Management Committee be reconstituted."

He was reappointed only in September last year as a replacement for Charles Akonnor.

A substantive coach will be appointed soon to start preparations for the crucial 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Nigeria in March.

Ghanasoccernet.com understands that Aston Villa youth coach George Boateng is interested, as well as former Black Stars assistant coach Ibrahim Tanko.
