Ghana sack Black Stars coach over poor performance at Afcon 2021

1 min read

Milovan Rajevac has been sacked as the manager of Ghana’s national team after their shock exit from the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars were dumped out at the group stage after a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Comoros, the islanders making their first ever appearance at the competition.

A statement from the Ghana Football Association (GFA) read: “After considering three reports and engagements with key stakeholders, the GFA has decided to end its relationship with coach Milovan Rajevac.

“The GFA will soon announce the reconstituted technical team and management committee after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders.”

The 68-year-old Rajevac had only been back in the post for four months, in his second stint in charge of the Black Stars.

He was rehired in September after Ghana made a poor start to the 2022 World Cup qualifiers but recovered to win their group and qualify for the March play-offs, where they will take on Nigeria.

Rajevac was coach when Ghana reached the World Cup quarter-finals in 2010, before going on to national team jobs in Algeria, Qatar and Thailand.

The Serbian is the first managerial casualty of the Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.
