The Sports Ministry rubbished reports that they have given Ghana Football Association the go-ahead to appoint Milovan Rejevac as the new Black Stars coach on a two-year deal.
Reports last week suggested that Milovan Rejevac will soon be named as CK Akonnor’s successor after the Sports Ministry agreed to be footing the $45,000 salary of the Serbian coach for the next two years.
Speaking to Angel FM, Deputy Sports Minister Hon. Evans Owusu Bobie said no approval has been given by his outfit.
“We haven’t approved Milo as Black Stars Coach, We are yet to receive GFA committee’s report,” he said
“Per our checks as a ministry we have not seen Milo, we have not even received any report from the FA regarding the appointment of a new coach.”
Milovan Rejevac handled the west Africans between 2008 and 2010, leading the side to the final of the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations, where they lost to Egypt by a lone goal.
He also guided the team to the quarter-final of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa. Rajevac quit Ghana coaching job after the World Cup on 8 September 2010, and took up a position with Saudi Arabian team Al-Ahli a day later.
Ghana sit 3rd with three points after two matches played. The Black Stars resume qualifiers with a doubleheader against Zimbabwe next month.
