New coach for Black Stars
from MASAHUDU KUNATEH in Accra, Ghana
ACCRA – MILOVAN Rajevac, the Serbian mentor, has bounced back as the coach of the Ghana national team.
He is back to replace Kwesi Appiah, whose future had been in doubt following a disappointing World Cup in June-July in Brazil.
Some Ghanaian media had reported on Tuesday that if Appiah lost against Togo, Rajevac could be named coach before the weekend.
But the Ghana Football Association is said to have moved up the decision even after Appiah commandeered a resilient 3-2 win against Togo on Wednesday.
The FA are aware of the Serbian’s popularity despite the abrupt way he left Ghana following his historic leadership of the team to the last eight of the 2010 World Cup.
He also led Ghana to a final place in the 2010 African Cup and, a year before, another final place finish of the nation’s CHAN team.
Rajevac has since insisted that he only left the job because a deal to renew a contract was not handled by the FA well.
