Sports Ministry Demands The Sacking Of Black Stars Head Coach Milovan Rajevac In Emergency Meeting

The Ministry of Youth and Sports in Ghana demands the sacking of Black Stars head coach Milovan Rajevac after summoning the Ghana Football Association to an emergency meeting on Friday, January 21, 2022 to discuss what went wrong with the team as they exited Africa Cup of Nations at the group stage. Reports in the local media indicated the Youth and Sports Ministry is convinced that Milovan Rajevac cannot lead Ghana to the glory land, hence must vacate his position for another gaffer to take over the helm of affairs. 

On their part, the Ghana Football Association believes Milovan Rajevac must be allowed to continue as head coach because of how close World Cup qualifiers are. The Ghana Football Association - per reports - explained that the time is too close for Milovan Rajevac to be sacked since Black Stars will be playing the final round of World Cup qualifiers in March. 

The Ghana Football Association, in the meeting added that, sacking Milovan Rajevac will be expensive since he has to be compensated. 

Black Stars of Ghana - prior to the commencement of the Nations Cup - were tasked by President Akufo-Addo to win this year’s Nations Cup. 

Black Stars of Ghana failed to live up to expectations following an abysmal performance in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations. 

Milovan Rajevac led his charges into the competition and lost the opening fixture to Morocco. 

Black Stars tried to make amends in the second group game against Gabon but had to fight for a point after taking the lead through skipper Dede Ayew. 

Wild calculations became the order of day among Ghanaians as some were full of hope that the Senior National team can pull a surprise and advance to the next stage. 

In the last group game against Comoros, Black Stars were handed a shocking 3 - 2 defeat. Comoros broke the deadlock in the first half, added the second goal in the second half. Ghana pulled one back and restored parity. Comoros broke the heart of Ghanaians with the winning goal in the closing stages of the game. Black Stars toiled to even the scores but were denied any opportunity to come closer to glory. 

Ghana had to exit the competition with a point and became the last team in Group C. 

Black Stars head coach Milovan Rajevac is not stepping despite abysmal performance in Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon. The Serbian trainer looks ahead to leading Ghana into World Cup after exiting at the group stage of the continental showpiece.
