GFA sacks Black Stars boss Milovan Rajevac after shock AFCON 2021 exit

Tha Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed the sacking of Black Stars head coach Milovan Rajevac.

The Serbian leaves the Black Stars after just four months in charge.

Rajevac was appointed in September as a replacement for C.K Akonnor and guided the Black Stars to the playoffs of the World Cup qualifiers.

However, his reign was cut short after Ghana exited AFCON 2021 at the group stage, without picking up a single win.

Despite being one of the favourites, along with Morocco, to make it out of a group that also included Comoros and Gabon, the Black Stars finished bottom.

A statement from the GFA confirmed the Serb’s departure, explaining that the decision by the Executive Council was taken after it received “a technical report from the coach, a medical report and the report from the Management Committee.”

The Executive Council also reached a decision to dissolve the Black Stars management committee.

“The Executive Council after considering the three reports and engagements with key stakeholders has decided to end its relationship with Coach Milovan Rajevac and also decided that the Black Stars Management Committee be reconstituted,” the statement said.

“The Association would like to thank Milovan Rajevac and the Management Committee the very best in their future endeavours.”

The GFA added that it will announce new technical and management teams soon “after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders.”
