Black Stars New Head Coach Returns With One Goal Project For Ghana?

Minutes by minutes, Ghana will bring finality to the issue surrounding the next Black Stars coach. All fingers point to Milovan Rajevac as a result of information extracted from those who matter. 

The Ministry in charge of Sports, per reports in the local media, approved the appointment of Milovan Rajevac on a two-year deal. His appointment is imminent as Ghanaians are anxiously waiting for the successor to Charles Akonnor. 

Whiles Milovan Rajevac may be visiting his notes to jot down few things which will be implemented in Ghana, it is worth pointing out to Ghanaians that, there could be another era of one goal project for the Senior National team. In other words, the one goal project Ghanaians witnessed during the tenure of Milovan Rajevac may be rekindled. 

On record, Milovan Rajevac led Ghana into 2010 African Cup of Nations, played in Angola. Black Stars of Ghana strived to appear in the finals but the famous one goal project under Milovan Rajevac made the tournament nerve-racking ordeal for Ghanaians. Constant criticism was meted out to the playing body. Archival digging affirms what the team did back then, and how it eventually paid off for them. 

Key in the one goal project was General Captain Asamoah Gyan. He was the linchpin in getting the goals for Ghana or putting the balls at the back of the net. The current situation may not permit the goal monger to replicate his previous blistering and sensational scoring prowess. In 2010 Afcon - at the Group Stage - Black Stars scored 2 goals in two matches, with Asamoah Gyan and Dede Ayew getting the goals. At the knockout stages, Ghana scored two goals, a goal each in quarter and semi finals. Asamoah Gyan rescued Ghana in those moments. The former Sunderland goal machine ended the tournament on three goals for Ghana. 

As Ghana aspires to conquer Africa next year in Cameroon, is Milovan Rajevac venturing into the slippery zone with a one goal project? If that becomes his approach, which player will be fell upon to execute that mission? 

Recent results from Black Stars point to the fact that strikers in the caliber of Asamoah Gyan are yet to be nurtured or discovered. The last two matches against Ethiopia and South Africa came with a goal which was scored by midfielder Mubarak Wakaso. 

This indicates that Milovan Rajevac needs to unearth a potent striker, who has the mental fortitude akin that of Asamoah Gyan to fetch him goals. 

If the one goal project is relived, Ghanaians may not be surprised but Milovan Rajevac has a huge task in implementing that to get honors for the West African Nation.
