At the press conference yesterday, Milovan Rajevac had the opportunity to address Ghanaians on many issues with particular reference on past events. He, at a point, called for the past to be left as it is while concentrating on the future. What is about to happen must be the concern than paying attention to what belongs to history.
From his numerous answers to divergent questions, one thing that caught the attention of this piece is his readiness to complete an unfinished business in the West African Nation.
The decision by Milovan Rajevac to accept $30,000 tells what he intends to achieve for the Senior National team and Ghana. It is worth noting that there are juicy or mouthwatering bonuses tied to his targets. In as much as he wants to win laurel for Ghana, he is not unaware of the financial package that comes with success. So he may have settled for this amount, whiles looking at the larger picture, that is, making use of the opportunity now to win Afcon, which eluded him in 2010, without necessary being fixated over the amount to receive.
The one year contract - which is subject to Afcon title and World Cup qualification - is a huge risk that may not be accommodated by many coaches. Most coaches will crave for other options than what looks like a bleak deal.
Again, his remarks on 2010 World Cup in Southern part of Africa hints of his touch with history and reality. He takes over a job that he previously missed a golden moment to set an African record. His comeback tells what he may be having in mind and how he could approach same opportunity in the near future. Ghana’s qualification to the World Cup could have started with another story if he had been in charge from the opening match against Ethiopia in Cape Coast last month.
His comments on how to go about Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifiers prompted his focus in the immediate sense. The Serbian tactician looks at completing a mission in the World Cup qualifiers. Whereas Afcon is taking place next year, a World Cup double-header stares Ghana in fortnight. He cannot evade from Afcon title ambition but he faces what comes soon.
Ghanaians will be paying critical attention to the difference Mikovan Rajevac brings on board, but the Serbian tactician appears to looking forward to complete unfinished task.
