Derek Boateng attacks ex-Ghana foreign coaches, claims they are 'clueless'

Published on: 31 March 2023

Former Ghana international Derek Boateng has attacked Milovan Rajevac and other former foreign Black Stars coaches, claiming they are clueless. 

In recent times, the Ghana FA has relied on expatriate coaches in a bid to end the country’s continental trophy drought.

Milovan Rajevac, Avram Grant, Goran Stevanovic are among the foreign coaches to have worked with the Black Stars.

Under Rajevac and Avram Grant, the Black Stars were able to reach the finals of the African Cup of Nations in 2010 and 2015 respectively.

But Derek Boateng has delivered a damning verdict on the Serbian trainer and other foreign coaches to have worked with the national team.

“All the foreign coaches we had during our time in the Black Stars were clueless including Milovan Rajevac. Truth be told, we had a good team. During the 2010 World Cup, myself, Quincy Owusu Abayie, Sulley Muntari and other top players were on the bench and that tells you the kind of team we had. We were playing in top clubs and in top teams at the time, so it is not like Milovan Rajevac and other foreign coaches did something extraordinary, No”

“We trained as if we are playing a match, every player put in much effort in a bid to get into the starting lineup. There was a serious competition in the team looking at the squad, to me, those foreign coaches did nothing” he said.
