Serbian-born Milovan Rajevac has been fired as Black Stars Ghana coach.

Rajevac’s sacking came 24 hours after a high-level crisis meeting between officials from the Ghana Sports Ministry and Ghana Football Association on January 21 in Accra.

The crisis meeting recommended swift changes to the national team bench following The Black Stars early exit from AFCON 2021.

Rajevac, who led Ghana to a 2010 AFCON runner up finish and 2010 FIFA World Cup quarterfinals, returned for a second spell on a one-year deal as Black Stars coach in September, 2021 following Charles Akonnor’s dismissal.

The Serb has just presided over Ghana’s worst AFCON campaign in which they exited from the preliminary stage without a win for the first time in The Black Stars 60-year relationship with the competition.

Ghana finished bottom of Group C with 1 point from their three games.

Aston Villa U23 coach and ex-Dutch international midfielder George Boateng including Borussia Dortmund assistant trainer and ex-Black Stars winger Otto Addo are reportedly some of the notable candidates to replace Rajevac.
