Milovan Rajevac sacked after Ghana’s early exit from AFCON 2021

According to breaking news on Myjoyonline, the Ghana Football Association(GFA) has sacked Black Stars head coach, Milovan Rajevac.

 

The Serbian has been relieved of his duties after supervising Ghana’s woeful performance in the ongoing AFCON in Cameroon.

 

Following the abysmal performance of the senior national team Black Stars at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has ordered the Ghana Football Association to review the work and capacity of Black Stars head coach, Milovan Rajevac.

A statement signed by the Minister for Youth and Sports Mustapha Ussif ordered the FA to reconstitute the Black Stars Management Committee. The Black Stars were eliminated in the group stage after Milovan Rajevac’s side suffered a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Comoros on Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

The defeat condemned the Black Stars to an exit in the group stages of the AFCON for the first time since 2006. Mustapha Ussif said the country has lost confidence in the team and questioned the capacity of the coach.

“The Ministry made it clear to the GFA that the people of Ghana have lost confidence in the capacity of the current technical team of the Black Stars to deliver success. The Ministry, therefore, asked the GFA to review the work and capacity of the Black Stars technical team led by the head coach Milovan Rajevac,” the statement said.

“Following the emergency meeting, the Ministry, in accordance with his mandate asked the Ghana Football Association to reconstitute the Black Stars Management Committee,” the statement added.

Earlier, President of the GFA, Kurt Okraku, said Ghanaians calling for the head or the dismissal of coach Milovan Rajevac is premature.

In an interview on Accra-based Asempa FM, he said the FA will take the right decision for Ghana.

“It is important we have cool heads, engage and take the right decisions for Ghana,” he said.

Kurt Okraku also reiterated that the coach was the one who selected the players for the tournament.

“Milovan is the ultimate selector of players for the national team. When he names his squad, he sends it to a committee and justifies his call-ups to them. Nobody selects players for the coach,” he stated.
