Ghana has sacked their head coach Milovan Rajevac eight days after the Black Stars crashed out of the Africa Cup of Nations in the group stages. The country’s football association (GFA) held a discussion about the future of the 68-year-old Serb’s position some days after the shocking group-stage elimination from the African Cup of Nations.
Ghana Sack their Head Coach
Ghana Football Association released a statement saying that they have sacked the manager following their early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations. “The GFA will soon announce the reconstituted technical team and management committee after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders.”
Ghana will need to have a coach in place ahead of their crucial two-legged 2022 World Cup play-off against West African arch-rivals Nigeria in March. The Black Stars suffered a dismal tournament in Cameroon under Rajevac, taking only a single point from games against Morocco, Gabon and Comoros and finishing bottom of Group C.
The defeat by Comoros in a game they needed to win to qualify for the last 16 is one of the lowest points in their team’s history. Rajevac was re-appointed for his second spell with the country last year September and initially did well, successfully guiding Ghana through the second round of World Cup qualifying with a controversial win against South Africa.
