The Ghana Football Association are set to appoint Serbian trainer Milovan Rajevac as the new head coach for the Black Stars, according to reports.
He will be replacing Charles Kwablan Akonnor who was sacked last Monday in what the GFA termed as poor performance in Ghana’s recent World Cup qualifying games against Ethiopia and South Africa.
Despite the series of names been linked to the vacant position, Milovan Rajevac will be unveiled as the new head coach for the West African nation having left eleven years ago.
Milovan Rajevac previously coached the Black Stars in 2008 and finished as runner-up at the Cup of Nations in 2010 and narrowly missed out on a semi-final place at the 2010 World Cup to Uruguay.
Rajevac left the Ghana job in September 2008 and subsequently joined Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia. He would later leave that job and take up the Qatari job in 2011.
He has since coached Slovenia’s Ruda Velenje, the Algerian National team, and Thailand. He was Thailand coach between 2017 and 2019.
Milo, as popularly known will be tasked to secure a place in the 2022 Fifa World Cup which is scheduled to be hosted in Qatar next year.
Ghana sit 3rd with three points after two matches played. The Black Stars resume qualifiers with a doubleheader against Zimbabwe next month.
Ghana missed out in the last edition of the global showpiece hosted in Russia in 2018.
