AFCON 2021: Ghana coach Rajevac vows not to quit after disastrous exit, keen to lead World Cup playoffs

Published on: 19 January 2022

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has no intention of walking away despite the Black Stars utterly embarrassing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

Black Stars crashed out of the tournament at the group stage following a shocking 3-2 defeat against debutants Comoros on Tuesday evening.

Black Stars were expected to win to stand a chance of advancing to the next stage with four points as they lost their opening game against Morocco and drew with Gabon.

But Comoros, a side ranked 132 by FIFA, produced probably their greatest performance ever to stun Ghana, who played over 65 minutes with 10 men as Andre Ayew was sent off.

The Serbian, who was reappointed in September, is under pressure to step down, but wants to continue.

"I will stay and lead Ghana in the World Cup Qualifiers in March," Rajevac said.

"My target was to qualify Ghana for the World Cup, this AFCON is my primary target. I am looking forward to qualifying Ghana for the world cup in March."

World Cup play-offs draw will be conducted this Saturday, January 22, 2022.
