AFCON

Blame Milovan Rajevac For Ghana’s Poor AFCON Show - Ex-Black Stars Winger

Ex-Ghana international, Laryea Kingston has laid blame at the doorstep of Black Stars coach, Milovan Rajevac for the country’s poor 2021 AFCON outing in Cameroon.

Ghana replicated the poor performance of the 2006 AFCON in Egypt this year where they exited the group stage. Finishing bottom of Group C, the four time winners opened their campaign with 1-0 loss against North Africans, Morocco at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium. A 1-1 draw in the second game against Gabon set the ground for more disaster as qualification looked increasingly difficult. The Black Stars completed their poor campaign with a shocking 3-2 loss to debutants, Comoros to settle for just a point in three group games.

Laryea Kingston said: “I can’t blame the players entirely for what happened. We have to have a good technical team that will guide them. The players only execute what they are told on the pitch,” he told Silver FM. “The minnows who are causing upshocks at the tournament have good men on their technical bench that’s why. I agree to such an assertion. That’s why I insist we should limit the blame on the players. “I agree with majority of Ghanaians that the technical team let us down. If you change formation in all your three matches, it means you don’t have belief in what you have.

“As a technical person, I saw no hint that the team had a certain pattern of play instituted by the Coach,” he concluded. A chase for their first AFCON title in 40-years has been shattered and attention has now been shifted to the final qualifier of the 2022 FIFA World Cup set for March.
