Breaking News - Ghana Sacks Coach After 3:2 Win Over Togo by djfiifi(m): 10:08pm On Sep 11, 2014
The Ghana FA have today agreed to make
Milovan Rajevac the new Black Stars coach
following an interview earlier.
Citi Sports understands that Kwesi Appiah is
done as the coach of Ghana and a severance
package will be held by the end of the
weekend.
The former Black Stars coach touched down
in Accra on Monday in what he thought was a
quiet entry, but he was caught by journalists.
Citi Sports understands that the 60-year old
had an interview with the Ghana FA on
Thursday.
Following a dismal World Cup, the plan was
to get a technical adviser for Kwesi Appiah,
who then chose veteran local coach Ben
Koufie.
The choice was rebuffed by the three-man
committee setup to do the job, who then
went about looking for another choice.
Milovan’s coming sends clear signals that
key people within the FA are paving the way
for him, despite the initial plan being for him
to be a technical adviser, if at all.
Citi Sports had reported on Tuesday that if
Appiah lost against Togo, Rajevac could be
named coach before the week ends.
But the GFA are said to have moved up the
decision even after Appiah commandeered a
resilient 3-2 win against Togo on
Wednesday.
The FA are aware of Milovan’s popularity
despite the abrupt way he left Ghana
following his historic leadership of the team
to the last eight of the 2010 World Cup.
He also led Ghana to a final place in the
2010 African Cup and, a year before, another
final place finish of the nation’s CHAN team.
Rajevac has since insisted that he only left
the job because a deal to renew a contract
was not handled by the FA well.

Writing on the wall
The GFA, in August, set up a three-man
committee to appoint a technical adviser for
the Black Stars.
Citi Sports had earlier revealed that the
Serbian, who was one of three names being
considered, was favourite to land the job .
He told GNA Sports earlier this week: “I
cannot wait to join the family again. I am
very excited to be back here; my second
home. It is always relaxing and I love it
here.”
Kwesi Appiah who has previously stated that
he has not considered resigning from his
position,
