AFCON 2021: Ghana sacks coach Milovan Rajevac

Coach of the Ghana Black Stars, Milovan Rajevac is to be dismissed following the Black Stars’ group stage elimination at AFCON in Cameroon.

According to BBC, Ghana had performed dismally at the tournament under the Serbian, taking only a single point from games against Morocco, Gabon and Comoros and finishing bottom of their group.

The 3-2 defeat to Comoros in a game they needed to win to qualify for the last 16 marked one of the lowest points in the national team’s history.

Rajevac was re-appointed for his second spell as Ghana boss in September 2021 and initially did well, successfully taking Ghana out of the second round of World Cup qualifying with a win against South Africa.

It is now expected that he will be replaced with an interim coach as the Black Stars prepare for the final qualifying games for Qatar 2022.

Ghana went into AFCON 2022 hoping to turn around a misfortune that has seen the West African side fail to replicate their last Africa Nations tournament victory way back in 1982, when they won it for the fourth time.
