GFA capo Kurt Okraku insists Milovan Rajevac is the right man for Black Stars job

Published on: 24 September 2021

Ghana FA President Kurt Okraku has insisted that Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac is the right man to lead the Black Stars.

The Black Stars have failed to win a major silverware since 1982 despite coming close to ending the trophy drought in the last decade, 2010 Angola losing to Egypt in the finals and in 2015 Equatorial Guinea- Gabon as the Stars lost to Ivory Coast on penalty shootout.

The 67-year-old was reappointed at a press briefing on Friday to lead Ghana for the second time.

At the presser, Kurt Okraku defended Milovan Rajevac appointment and said he is the right man to lead the Black Stars to glory.

"When we knew Milovan was available we knew he is the right man for the job," Okraku told reporters at the Headquarters of the GFA.

Rajevac replaces Charles Akonnor who was sacked about 11 days ago following a defeat to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifications.

The Serbian will be assisted by Borussia Dortmund’s Head of Talent Development Otto Addo as well as former Asante Kotoko head coach Maxwell Konadu.
