Former Black Stars Coach, Milovan Rajevac, Leading The Race To Be Appointed As Black Star Coach

Former Black Stars coach, Milovan Rajevac, is leading the race to be appointed subsequent Black Stars coach, Citi Sports sources have revealed.

The 67-year-old Serbian was previously responsible of the Ghana national team, leading them to the CHAN final in 2009, the AFCON final in 2010 and therefore the quarter-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup .

The Ghana Football Association are racing against the clock to seek out a replacement coach for Ghana following the choice to alleviate CK Akonnor of his duties on Monday after a poor start to the 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign during which he won one and lost one among the opening two games.

Government gave approval for the GFA to appoint a far off coach on Tuesday, after initially insisting that subsequent Black Stars coach must be Ghanaian.

The GFA’s preferred choice was former Zambia and Cote d’Ivoire coach, Herve Renard, who is currently responsible of the Saudi Arabia national team.

But the Frenchman’s high wages ($100,000 per month) was deemed unaffordable by the country and he was subsequently ruled out.

Other names considered for the work include former Black Stars winger Otto Addo, who currently works as assistant coach at German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

George Boateng, the previous Middlesbrough captain was also contacted for the highest job.
