Milovan Rajevac has been re-appointed as coach of the Black Stars by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The 67-year-old has penned an initial one-year deal, which will be automatically extended until February 2023 if he can lead the team to the World Cup finals in Qatar.
Milovan takes over from CK Akonnor whose contract was terminated by the GFA earlier in September following Ghana’s 1-0 defeat to South Africa in the 2022 World Cup qualifier.
He will earn $30,000 a month and would receive a $300,000 bonus if he can lead Ghana to the World Cup and the same amount if they win the delayed 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
His first priority will be to prepare the Black Stars for October’s back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe.
Ghana are currently second in Group G on three points after two of six games, with only the group winners advancing to the next round in the race to reach Qatar next year.
He will be assisted by former Ghana international Otto Addo as well as Legon Cities coach, Maxwell Konadu.
Otto Addo will be combining the Black Stars’ role with his job as part of the coaching set up at Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
On the other hand, Maxwell Konadu makes a return to the Black Stars deputy coach role, having served as an assistant to Kwasi Appiah and then Avram Grant between 2014 to 2019.
Former international Richard Kingson has been appointed as goalkeeper coach.
Rajevac led Ghana to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The Serbian has been without a club after he was sacked as head coach of Thailand in January 2019 the day after a 4-1 loss to India at the Asia Cup.
