Milovan Rajevac has officially been sacked as Black Stars head coach by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) following the painful exit at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
The four-time African champions suffered an early group-stage exit following their 3-2 defeat to debutants Comoros.
Ghana finished bottom of Group C with only one point after three matches played.
Below is a full statement from the GFA:
“The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has decided to part ways with Black Stars Coach Milovan Rajevac.”
“This follows the receipt of the Technical Report from the Coach, the Medical Report and the Report from the Management Committee following Ghana’s early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 tournament.
“The Executive Council after considering the three reports and engagements with key stakeholders has decided to end its relationship with Coach Milovan Rajevac and also decided that the Black Stars Management Committee be reconstituted.
“The Association would like to thank Milovan Rajevac and the Management Committee for their service and wish them the very best in their future endeavours.
“The GFA will soon announce the reconstituted Technical Team and Management Committee after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders.
“Ghana’s next assignment is a FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 playoff against Nigeria in March 2022.”
The AFCON exit increased the pressure on coach Milovan Rajevac, who returned for a second spell in charge in September.
The 68-year-old led the Black Stars to the AFCON final in 2010 and the World Cup quarter-finals the same year and guided the West Africans through to Africa’s play-offs for this year’s World Cup.
