Ghana's No. 1

Rajevac in shock return to Black Stars

Published on: 21 November 2010

Milovan Rajevac wants to return as Ghana coach, three months after leaving the post for a more lucarative deal with Saudi club Al Ahli-Jeddah.

The 56-year-old has struggled both on and off the field in his new environment in Saudi Arabia.

He met visited the Black Stars on Wednesday ahead of the friendly against Saudi Arabia in Dubai

He told top GFA officials that he wants to return to the Black Stars as he has been unhappy since leaving the West Africans for a lucrative deal with Ahli.

To make matters even worse he has bitterly fallen out with his ex-agent Goran Milovanovic for signing for Ahli without his knowledge.

Rajevac was spotted in Dubai when Ghana played Saudi Arabia in a friendly but failed to make the game so as not to attract attention.

Some top GFA officials on the other hand, are said to be in favour of the Serb's return considering how well the Black Stars did under his tutelage.

Rajevac is reportedly free to walk out on his contract with the Saudi side in January 2011 and has already made Ghana his preferred destination if he is to trigger that clause on his current deal.

He took Ghana to the final of the 2010 Nations Cup and the quarter finals of the 2010 World Cup before deciding to leave the job in August after Ghana beat Swaziland 3-0 in the 2012 Africa Nations Cup qualifier.

Ghana has since played two games (against Sudan and Saudi Arabia) without a win and also without a goal.
