Former Vice president Ghana Football Association (GFA), George Afriyie says the current FA took the easy way out in appointing Milovan Rajevac to coach the Black Stars.

The Serbian coach made a return as Ghana boss last October to replace Charles Kwabla Akonnor who was sacked by the GFA.

The second coming of the 67-year-old seems to have backfired after Ghana exited the AFCON tournament.

The Ministry of Youth and Sports has directed the GFA to review the work of the technical team headed by Milovan Rajevac and dissolve the management committee.

According to George Afriyie, the GFA appointed Milovan Rajevac because it was the easy thing to do at that time.

In an interview on Accra-based radio station  Happy FM, George Afriyie admitted he was not in support of Milovan’s comeback.

“We need to look at Milovan Rajevac from 2010 and comparing him today it won’t be the same”.

“Football is evolving and a lot has happened since. He might have lost touch. We just took the easy way out by appointing him. Some of us were not in support of his coming especially when our second coming doesn’t work for us in terms of coaching”.

George added that Kurt Okraku should have factored appointing a coach who could fit his vision for the Black Stars.

“You must always bear in mind that your next appointment fit in your vision”.
