The new Black Stars head coach Milovan Rajevac has been unveiled by the Ghana Football Association at a short ceremony at its secretariat in Accra on Friday.
His signing as Black Stars trainer is expected to revive the team’s hope of challenging for the next African Cup of Nation (AFCON) in Cameroun next January.
He has also been tasked to secure a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification in Qatar after the team’s poor start to the campaign in which they narrowly beat Ethiopia 1-0 in Accra and lost by the same margin against South Africa.
Rajevac,67, is making a return to coach the senior national team after his first spell saw him leading the Black Stars to the 2010 African Cup of Nations in Angola and FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
Milovan Rajevac will earn $30,000 per month and he will earn US$ 300,000 to win the AFCON, and also $300,000 to qualify the Black Stars to the World Cup.
He also guided the home-based Black Stars to the maiden African Nations Championship in Cote d’Ivoire in 2009.
The experienced trainer left his first job with Ghana in 2010 to join Saudi Arabia side Al-Ahli Jeddah before subsequently coaching Qatar, Rudar Velenje, Algeria, and Thailand.
