Milovan Rajevac’s appointment as the next Black Stars coach has been approved by stakeholders, JoySports report.
The Ghana FA named a three-member committee to hunt for a successor for CK Akonnor following the decision of the Executive Council to part company with the former Asante Kotoko head coach last week.
JoySports reported Milo, as Rajevac is affectionately called, was leading the race for a second stint with the senior national team having led the country to the final of the maiden edition of CHAN in 2009, the 2010 AFCON in Angola, and the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa pending approval from the Executive Council and other stakeholders.
Over the weekend, consultative meetings were held where Milo was approved to succeed Akonnor.
We understand he will be introduced to the leadership of the government before a formal announcement is made latest within the next 48 hours.
As JoySports reported last week, the Serbian will sign a two-year deal with a monthly salary of about $45,000.
The Serbian International has previously coached the Black Stars in 2008 and finished as runner-up at the Cup of Nations in 2010 and narrowly missed out on a semi-final place at the 2010 World Cup to Uruguay.
Rajevac left the Ghana job in September 2008 and subsequently joined Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia.
He would later leave that job and take up the Qatari job in 2011. He has since coached Slovenia’s Ruda Velenje, the Algerian National team, and Thailand. He was Thailand coach between 2017 and 2019.
