Ghana FA Agrees Two-year Contract With Incoming Black Stars Coach Milovan Rajevac

The Ghana Football Association has agreed a two-year contract with Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac as he makes a sensational return to coach the Black Stars, can exclusively report.

The 67-year-old arrived in the Ghanaian capital of Accra on Sunday night ahead of him being named as the new coach of Ghana when all formalities are completed.

Following discussions between Rajevac and officials of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) an agreement has been reached between the two parties for an initial two year contract to be signed.

Following this agreement, Rajevac will have a meeting with officials of the GFA on Monday morning before he is sent to meet the Sports Minister of Ghana, Hon. Mustapha Ussif later in the day.

That is because the sports ministry pays the salary of the coach which means they must be aware of the terms of the contract.

Following his meeting with the Sports Minister, Rajevac will sign a two-year performance-based contract to coach the Black Stars and repeat his magic with the side he guided to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup.

It is believed that the GFA and Rajevac have already agreed all the terms of his contract before his arrival as there is the for things to be completed quickly in time to name his squad for next month’s World Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe.

The Serbian will be given an official place of his residence as well as an official car to to help him effectively carry out his duties.

This revelation comes even before the GFA officially announces the outcome of the report of the three-man committee to select a new coach for the senior national team.

This confirms the GFA is on the verge of naming Rajevac as the new coach of the national team for his second stint with the Black Stars, can exclusively report, confirming our revelation the day Charles Akonnor was sacked.

Last week Monday, the GFA sacked Akonnor citing the unimpressive showing of the Black Stars and minutes later Ghana’s leading football news outfit revealed that Rajevac was leading the race to land the ojb.

Now the three-man committee, tasked with selecting a new coach for the Black Stars, has agreed to hand the experienced Serbian the mandate to return to coach the Black Stars after his heroics with the national team at the 2010 World Cup.

The committee decided to narrow down on ‘Milo’ for various reasons including his knowledge of the Ghanaian terrain, his strong disciplinary record and on-the-field record to at least salvage the Black Stars World Cup qualifying campaign and to take the country to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon.

With more than 100 CVs received from coaches across the world seeking to lead the Black Stars, the committee agreed that the safest bet is to name someone familiar with the terrain and has got the potential of bringing back the glory days.

Rajevac will lead Ghana in the next World Cup qualification matches against Zimbabwe in a doubleheader next month.

Ghana are currently second in the standings after two rounds of the qualification matches of the global tournament.

The Serbian will also be tasked to lead the Black Stars to a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations triumph in Cameroon next January
