Pre-Match Presser: We Will Handle The Pressure Tomorrow - Black Stars Head Coach Discloses

Black Stars head coach Milovan Rajevac has disclosed that his team will learn how to handle the pressure in tomorrow’s game at the Harare National Sports Stadium. Addressing the media at a Pre-Match conference the Serbian tactician believes a failure to handle pressure will not guarantee a success. 

“So we will learn how to handle the pressure because if you cannot handle the pressure you cannot succeed in this game”, said Milovan Rajevac at a media briefing. 

His remarks explains his immense understanding and appreciation of what is about to happen tomorrow in Zimbabwe’s capital. It will be irrelevant on his part to sweep aside the strength and ability of the Warriors even though they arrived late in Zimbabwe, after losing to the Black Stars on Saturday at the Cape Coast Stadium. 

Coach Milovan - per his effusion with the media - is on the way of doing away with complacency in his team. As Black Stars of Ghana appear favorite to carry the day, there is the need to clamp down on complacency and over confidence among the squad. It does not fit team’s purpose and focus if players have it at the back of their minds that they have won ahead of schedule. Milovan Rajevac looks not ready to entertain that in camp. 

On pressure, there will definitely be a point where the Warriors of Zimbabwe will attack Black Stars of Ghana in the course of the match. They hinted what to occur last Saturday. The return of star player Khama Billiat will fortify their attack tomorrow. His pair with Knowledge Masuno will come different for Ghana’s defenders. Ghana will go into the game all prepared but that does not warrant an everlasting holiday throughout proceedings. It benefits the team once the gaffer has acknowledged what could come the way of Black Stars of Ghana. He is threading cautiously at the same time working on the psyche of his players. Indirectly, his message could sway his opponent. 

At the same press conference, Milovan Rajevac attached significance to the game. 

“Every next match is the next important and the hardest.”

The relevance of the game comes in a way such that Black Stars of Ghana cannot afford to drop points tomorrow. It is a must-win for Ghana if the West African nation wants to make an impact in Group G. Leaders South Africa are in a pole position to beat Ethiopia, hence only a win could keep Ghana afloat in the battle for qualification.
