Milovan Rajevac is new Black Stars manager

Ghana Football Association (GFA) has unveiled Milovan Rajevac as the new coach of the senior national team, Black Stars.

His contract is for a year.

The tenure “automatically” extends to the end of February 2023 if he is able to qualify the team to the World Cup.

Rajevac will be paid $30,000 as salary.

He will be assisted by Ghanaian coaches Maxwell Konadu and Otto Addo.

The Executive Council of the GFA formed a three-member committee made up of Vice-president Mark Addo, Upper East Regional Football Association Chairman Salifu Zida, and Dr Randy Abbey, to find a Head Coach and Assistant Coaches for the 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.
