Information from trusted sources within the Ghana Football Association (GFA) reaching InsiderGH.com indicates that Former Black Stars Coach, Milovan Rajevac, is set to be named the next coach for the Senior National Team.
According to our source, GFA’s preferred choice was Herve Renard.
The Frenchman showed interest in the job, but asked tif the Ghana Football Association can afford to pay him.
They went back to crunch the numbers – $100k/m =$2.4m for 2 years.
The GFA upon further deliberations came to conclusion that they can’t afford the salary demands of the Frenchman hence landing on Milovan Rajevac.
On Monday, the Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association announced it had parted ways with head coach Charles Akonnor, together with his two assistants, and quickly formed a three-member Committee to find a Head Coach and Assistant Coaches for the Black Stars within the next 72 hours.
However, multiple reports in the local media say the committee has penciled down Milovan Rajevac as head coach with Otto Addo, and George Boateng as potential assistants.
Milovan Rajevac previously coached the Black Stars in 2008 and finished as runner-up at the Cup of Nations in 2010 and narrowly missed out on a semi-final place at the 2010 World Cup to Uruguay.
Rajevac left the Ghana job in September 2010 and subsequently joined Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia. He would later leave that job and take up the Qatari job in 2011. He has since coached Slovenia’s Ruda Velenje, the Algerian National team, and Thailand. He was Thailand coach between 2017 and 2019.
