3 Things Ghanaians Must Expect From The New Black Stars Coach.

With the details of the appointment completed, the new black stars coach, Coach Milovan Rajevac is set to be unveiled tomorrow at the Ghana Football Association office in Accra.

This will be the second time the Serbian tactician has coach the national team of Ghana with his first reign between 2008 and 2010. In those years, Ghana was recognized as one of the best footballing countries on the planet and even earned a record of placing 14th on the FIFA world ranking for national teams. Notably, it was under this same coach that Ghana qualified to the quarterfinals of the World Cup in 2010.

With the qualifying series of the World Cup two weeks away, most Ghanaians might be wondering what they are to expect from this coach and so I have compiled here, three things they should expect from Coach Milovan Rajevac.

Firstly, Ghanaians should expect a defensive minded team. This is because the Serbian believes that a defensive approach is the perfect way to win a game. In his first reign, Ghana was noted for scoring few goals and therefore named “One goal project”. This was enough to see Ghana place 3rd at the 2008 Afcon and significantly qualify for the World cup in 2010.

Another thing Ghanaians should expect is a team of only performing players. In the past, there has been mentions of players who did not deserve to be called up to the team. However, I believe this will stop during the reign of Milovan Rajevac. This is because he believes in results rather than names and it is only through this that he can achieve his targets.

Finally Ghanaians should expect the rebirth of a classical centre forward for the black stars. Under his first reign, we saw the birth of classical forwards such as Asamoah Gyan, Junior Agogo and Matthew Amoah. His second appointment may be a blessing for Jordan Ayew and other strikers who have not really performed for the black stars.

With the qualifying match against Zimbabwe in sight, Coach Milovan Rajevac will now have to speed up his preparation for the match and hope his second spell for the Black stars will be a success than the first.
