Coming back? Milovan Rajevac

Milovan Rajevac is back in town.

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 could be making a sooner-than-expected return as Ghana’s new boss after sources say Kwesi Appiah’s tenure is all but done.

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.

Now, we understand that if Appiah loses against Togo, Rajevac could be named coach before the week ends.

The GFA 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 commandeered a final place in the 2010 African Cup and, a year before, another final place finish of Ghana’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.
