Ghana national team head coach Milovan Rajevac has been sacked just four days after the country’s disastrous outing at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations according to reports from the West African nation.
The decision was taken by the Ghana FA on Saturday morning.
This comes less than 12 hours after the Sports Minister ordered a massive overhaul of the team’s backroom staff the Black Stars rare first round exit from Africa’s flagship football tournament.
The Serbian coach supervised one of Ghana’s worst performances at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
According to reports, the GFA at the meeting was hesitant about axing the Serbian particularly because of the severance fee the country is liable to pay – an estimated minimum of $270,000 which could rise to $370,000 if a sign-on fee is included.
However, after a stakeholders meeting held between the Sports Ministry and the Ghana Football Association on Friday, GFA has been directed to terminate the appointment of Milovan Rajevac with immediate effect.
The Black Stars failed to advance from the group stage in the tournament after losing to Comoros in its final game in Group C.
The team exited the tournament with a point. They also lost to Morocco in their opening game and drew with Gabon in their subsequent game.
