Milovan Rajevac, Ghana’s coach, has been fired barely four days after the country’s poor performance in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, according to GHANAsoccernet.com.
The Ghana FA made the decision on Saturday morning, according to Ghanasoccernet.com, the country’s premier football news outlet.
This comes less than 12 hours after Africa’s Sports Minister ordered a thorough revamp of the team’s backroom personnel following the Black Stars’ unusual first-round loss from the continent’s premier football competition.
At the present Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon, the Serbian coach oversaw one of Ghana’s poorest performances.
The four-time AFCON winners only managed one point in Group C, which included Morocco, Gabon, and Comoros.
Ghana was eliminated from the competition after losing to Morocco and debutants Comoros in the group stages.
Following the departure, the Ghana FA and the technical staff led by Coach Milovan Rajevac have come under great scrutiny, with supporters calling for the squad to be disbanded and the coach to be fired.
On Friday, the Sports Ministry and the Ghana Football Association conducted a stakeholders meeting.
Milovan Rajevac’s employment with the Ghana Football Association has been terminated with immediate effect.
The Ghana FA has agreed in principle to remove the 68-year-old, according to our sources at the Sports Ministry.
The Serbian trainer must go or the Sports Ministry will cease paying his salary.
