The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has officially part ways with coach Milovan Rajevac following an underwhelming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations campaign.

The Black Stars did not live up to expectations during the ongoing tournament as they shockingly suffered a group-stage elimination from the international showpiece.

Ghana finished at the bottom of Group C and they ended their adventure in Cameroon without a single victory, the first time in their tournament history.

The GFA has now decided to dismiss the Serbian tactician who was only reappointed Black Stars head coach in September 2021.

“The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has decided to part ways with Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac, 68,” a GFA statement read.

“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 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.”
