Two wins in two matches is just a perfect start to Milovan's second stint with the Black Stars, and somewhat enough to silence critics who opposed his appointment when the GFA identified him as CK Akunnor's replacement. The likes of John Paintsil, Yaw Annafi Agyeman Okoforobour and several others didn't subscribe to the idea of the GFA reappointing the Serbian tactician. In fact, Accra Heart of Oak board member, Vincent Odotei Sowah stated emphatically that, choosing Milovan Rejevac was a step in the wrong direction.
However the Serbian manager has been able to deal with the pressure and made a positive statement, after leading the team to victory in his first two games. In a crucial position in Group G of the World Cup qualifiers and at risk of relinquishing the opportunity of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Milovan Rejevac stepped in and helped the Black Stars beat the Warriors of Zimbabwe in Cape Coast and at Harare to keep our World Cup qualification hopes alive. Despite being a meagre achievement, Ghanaians least expected this, owing to the abysmal start in the campaign where they narrowly beat Ethiopia and lost to South Africa, but courtesy to Milovan Rejevac who has done a wonderful job to keep the Black Stars back on track.
However one of the people who saw this coming and never doubted the Serbian manager is former GFA president, Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe. Tamakloe was very confident the second spell of Milovan would work out well, despite his disbeliefs in second comings.
"For me personally I don't like second comings because it always comes with problems. However he's matured person and maybe he has weighed the issues and concerns and he feel he can handle the boys.
But I feel the man has an unfinished job in this country and he feels strongly that Ghana is putting him on the World Map, and so he has something to offer the country".
These were some soundbites from Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe few days after Milovan's appointment and the former GFA president was right about the Serbian manager, considering his bright start after taking the job.
Meanwhile the Black Stars still have daunting task ahead as the lie second, behind South Africa in their Group. The permutations are such that, if South Africa win their next two games, including a fixture with Ghana, they would finish as leaders in the group and proceed to second round of the qualifiers. However Ghana can assuredly qualify ahead of Bafana Bafana if they also win their next game against Ethiopia, and beat South Africa in their last match and Ghanaians would be counting on Milovan Rejevac to pull a magic once again to help the Black Stars qualify.
