The hope of Ghana clinching the Afcon trophy for the fifth time was dented in the group stage. The Black Stars put up a disastrous performance in the 2021 African cup of Nations campaign in Cameroon. Placing bottom of the log with just a point from three games in their Group (Group C), which included Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.
This results turned out to be the poorest campaign for the African football giant and four time champions in all their 23 Africa cup of nations appearances at the continental showpiece.
It did not take longer for the country's Sports Ministry to summon the Ghana football association (GFA) to an emergency meeting on Friday, January 21, 2022 to review the exit of the Ghana Black Star's from the AFCON 2021 tournament in Cameroon to also prevent another poor performance for the Qatar 2022 World cup play offs.
Ghanaians have lost confidence in the technical team’s ability to deliver and therefore demanded the sacking of the coach and his technical men after the abysmal performance of the Black Stars more especially when Ghana suffered a humiliating 3-2 defeat in the hands of debutants Comoros.
The result tagged as one of the biggest shocks in Nations Cup history as Comoros scored at the finals for the first time and then went on to record their maiden victory. It was soo incredible for Comoros, a side ranked 132nd in the world to advance to the knockout stages ahead of Ghana.
The Ministry was left with no option than to make it clear to the GFA that the people of Ghana have lost confidence in the capacity of the current technical team, therefor ordered the Ghana Football Association to dissolve the Black Stars Management Committee led by the head coach Milovan Rajevac.
In the interim, the Ministry of Youth and Sports headed by Honorable Mustapha Ussif, have directed the Ghana Football Association to reconstitute a new management committee that will see to the preparations of the Ghana Black Stars for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup playoffs in March, 2022.
