No $45K-a-month deal with Milovan as Black Stars coach – Sports Ministry

    The Ministry of Youth and Sports has denied agreeing with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to pay Milovan Rajevac $45,000 a month to be the next coach of the Black Stars.

    The ministry, in a statement, said it is aware of the processes of engaging a new coach for the Black Stars but the process has not been brought to its attention.

    It said the ministry is waiting for a report from the GFA on the engagement of a new coach for the senior national team.

    Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac has been tipped to be the next coach of the senior national team, Black Stars, following the exit of Coach C.K Akonnor.

    Akonnor was sacked after Ghana lost 0-1 to South Africa in a world cup qualifying match and beat Ethiopia 1-0 in an unconvincing home match.

    About Milovan Rajaevac

    He became Ghana manager in August 2008 where he continued the Black Stars’ qualification to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. In the tournament, Ghana almost reached the semi-final as they narrowly lost to Uruguay in the quarter-final via penalty shootout.

    Rajevac quit Ghana after the World Cup on 8 September 2010 and took up a position with Saudi Arabian team Al-Ahli a day later.

    On 15 June 2016, he was officially appointed as manager of Rudar Velenje in Slovenia. However, on 26 June 2016, he was appointed as manager of the Algerian national team. He resigned from the position in October 2016, after two matches.

    Rajevac has coached a number of clubs.

    He was adjudged Serbian Coach of the Year in 2010 and African Coach of the year in the same year.
