BREAKING: Rajevac to get two year deal, refused technical adviser job

Thursday 11th September , 2014 9:10 pm

Ghana is set to name Milovan Rajevac as the new coach of the Black Stars on a two year deal.

He replaces the embattled Kwesi Appiah after Citi Sports indicated that the Serbian passed his interview on Thursday.

A former boss to Appiah between 2009 and when he unceremoniously left the team after South Africa 2010, “Milo” Rajevac was hugely popular for his results-oriented style.

He was appointed at a time his CV was wafer thin, and since he left the 60-year old has been largely inactive.

But having largely been the mastermind who molded the backbone of this current Ghana team to prominence, the FA believe he simply is the best fix for a country waiting for a major trophy in 33 years.

Citi Sports understands that Milo, at Thursday’s interview, flatly refused to be Appiah’s technical adviser.

Ghana are currently chasing a place at the next African Cup, after beating Togo 3-2 on Wednesday to go second in Group E behind Uganda.

Refusing to go

Sources tell Citi Sports that Kwesi Appiah will be asked to resign or be sacked, but the former Ghana captain has publicly stated that he will do no such thing.

“If I resign then it means I have to pay the FA a compensation,” he said on Sunday after drawing Uganda in Kumasi.

The GFA, reports say, are willing to move on from the coach failed to deliver two key expectations, including winning the 2013 African Cup and getting to the World Cup semis.
