Ghana have sacked their national men’s football team head coach, Milovan Rajevac following the country’s poor performance in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The Ministry of Youth and Sports ordered the Ghana Football team (GFA) to sack the coach and dissolve the entire management team of the Black Stars.
The Ghana Black Stars returned home following their poor show at the Afcon.
They arrived in Accra on Thursday afternoon, January 20, 2022.
Ghana for the first time since 2006 could not advance advance beyond their group stage.
The team finished last in its group for the tournament, with calls mounting for the coach Milovan Rajevac to be sacked.
But the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kurt Okraku has stated that calls from a section of Ghanaians to sack the coach of Ghana Black Stars, Milovan Rajevac are premature.
In an interview on Accra-based Asempa FM Mr Okraku called for “cool heads” over the abysmal performance of the Black Stars in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
According to him, “it is important we have cool heads, engage and take the right decisions for Ghana.”
He indicated that it was the coach that selected the players for the National team for the Afcon 2021, saying emphatically that “Milovan is the ultimate selector of players for the national team. When he names his squad, he sends it to a committee and justifies his call-ups to them. Nobody selects players for the coach.”
He stressed that “any Ghana coach that allows people to select players for him doesn’t deserve to coach the Black Stars.”
Ghana finished last with one point from her three Group stage games at the Afcon after losing 1-0 to Morocco, drawing 1-1 with Gabon and losing 3-2 to Comoros Island
