2021 AFCON: I think Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac is capable of repeating 2010 heroics - Asamoah Gyan

Published on: 18 January 2022

Ghana's all-time highest goalscorer, Asamoah Gyan believes Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac is capable of repeating 2010 heroics at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The 68-year-old guided Ghana to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup and almost reached the semi-final as they narrowly lost to Uruguay via penalty shootout.

Black Stars are yet to secure a victory at the 2021 AFCON having lost 2-0 to Morocco in their opening game and held to a 1-1 draw by Gabon last Friday.

The four-time African champions,  who face Comoros in their final Group C game must beat the AFCON debutants to stand a chance of progressing to the round of 16 stage.

"Rajevac is a great guy tactically - he is very good and 2010 we went to the final with him, he did a lot of great things for Ghana. He came back and he has started his magic. He came when there were doubts whether we were going to win the other games and he delivered," Gyan told CAFOnline.com

"I think he’s capable of repeating it again but it's a different generation when working with different kind players that suit his tactics.

"Although he has returned, he’s doing a lot of things right, but this is a different era. Maybe he has changed his tactics a bit and we wish him the best of luck. Ghanaians will be praying for him and the team."
