Serbian coach Rajevac favourite to land Black Stars technical adviser job - report

Milovan Rajevac to stage return to the Black Stars

Milovan Rajevac to stage return to the Black Stars

The Ghana FA is close to naming Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac as the new technical adviser for the Black Stars, the BBC has reported.

The 60-year-old is one of the shortlisted candidates for the new job.

The three-man sub-committee have settled on three candidates and have forwarded their report to the powerful Executive Committee for further consideration.

Rajevac however stands tall amongst the shortlisted candidates due to his impressive work while coaching the Black Stars between 2008 and 2010.

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is expected to make a choice amongst the three-shortlisted candidates.

He appears inclined towards choosing the Serbian due to the excellent working relationship which existed between them while he was serving as his assistant.

There is however a bigger issue with the negotiation of Rajevac’s remuneration which threatens to scupper the appointment.

The ex Qatar coach’s heightened salary demands was the reason he did not extend his stay with the Black Stars in the first place following the expiration of his contract after the 2010 World Cup.

“We have not settled on [Milovan] Rajevac yet,” Ghana FA spokesman Ibrahim Sannie Daara told GHANAsoccernet.com when called to validate the information.

The GFA is expected to engage the shortlisted candidates in the coming days with prime focus on their wage demands and special expertise they will be expected to perform when eventually handed the job.

The announcement of an appointment is expected by the end or early next week to give the new man time to prepare to join up with the team’s preparations towards the opening 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers early next month.

    If Milo gets the technical adviser’s job, Kwasi Appiah would be out of the job in six months. That’s because he will definitely be threat for K Appiah’s job.

  2. Big E says:

    Milo is the best coach Ghana ever had

  3. fish says:

    Ebei,since GFA heard the name Milovan,they have not heard any name again.Why,is the dude jobless since he left black stars?.

  4. Anokwale says:

    This will be a bit awkward but whatever they do, they need to sit down and define roles. This is the issue.

  5. Ein says:

    There is nothing like role definition.
    Kwesi Appiah is fired.
    No question about that.
    Certainly Milo will call the shots and we can’t have two assistants under Milo.
    He must leave before he is disgraced.

  6. PeeWee says:

    @fish that is the problem with the black man, we are resistant to change that is why we are still stuck in the middle ages; why do we have to go for Milo again instead of trying someone else? He has achieved nothing since leaving Ghana a couple of years ago. If the current coach is not performing to your expectation why not just replace him…why do you have to spend more money on a technical directo

    THIS SERBIANS USE THE GHANA BLACK STARS TO GET WHAT THEY ARE LOOKING FOR.

    GFA has always wanted Milo and no one else! That was even the reason why they APPOINTED AKWESI APPIAH! They thought AA had learnt so much from Milo to be able to carry on! Unfortunately AA was just a “spectator” who only bath in the successes of Milo without learning how the positive results were achieved! AA underestimated the “weight” of the job and only depended on the “colo stuff” he learnt ! Milo has not been successful elsewhere after Ghana simply bcos the teams he had handled were nowhere the standard of the Black Stars! You can’t teach a sheep to be a goat! AA is not up to the job and must be fired or given some other assignment but the Black Stars job is too BIG for him! The GFA is also to be blamed for the situation, they have goofed bigtime with AA and are still “goofing” bigtime becos they themselves are confused and clueless. The GFA DOES NOT KNOW THE QUALITIES AND QUALIFICATION OF A GOOD COACH! THE GFA DOES NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT MODERN FOOTBALL IS ALL ABOUT! THEY ARE STILL ROAMING ABOUT IN THE “GUTTER TO GUTTER” ERA-CHOP AND QUENCH! ALL THE TIME AA WAS ASSISTANT , THEY COULD HAVE SENT HIM ON REFRESHER COURSES TO UPDATE HIS KNOWLEDGE ABOUT MODERN PRACTICES AND FOOTBALL COACHING! I BET MY LAST PESEWA, THAT MAXWELL KONADU IS MUCH MORE VERSED IN MODERN FOOTBALL PRACTICES THAN AA! IT IS INFERIORITY COMPLEX THAT IS “KILLING”" AA , NOTHING ELSE!

  11. woodini says:

    How!!!! Appiah was assistant coach to this man for 3 years but he never learnt anything from this man. Now this man is coming for as an adviser. Is Appiah ready to learn this time? I doubt.

  13. MILO says:

    GHANA FOOTBALL FEDERATION WE BEG YOU. THIS SERBIANS COACHES DON’T RESPECT GHANAIAN’S. LET GO IN FOR COACHES WITH GOOD CHARISMA TO WIN THE AFCON 2015 FOR GHANA

  14. MILO says:

    why do we lower ourselves to this Serbian Coaches with know respect for our leaders. they use our platform to make great impact later they ran for big money and they fail and eventually SACK from their work

  15. selfmade says:

    pere modern day technical directators are GERMAN’S!

    They are now the only country that really understand what’s called TACTICAL PLAY!

    The rest are all bogus!! What has Serbia achieved in modern football? Why is it that, the so called MILO hasn’t been hired by any country?

    Even the power houses of European football has now accepted the unchallenged tactical superiority
    of the Germans!!

    No serious football nation ll waste their scarce resources, time and money on a clueless Serbian coach unless that nation worship and endorse MEDIOCRITY!!

    NATION OF JOKERS!

  16. milo23`` says:

    Serbian Coaches don’t respect Ghanian’s . modern football now as changed not palying on top and defend what kind of football is this. serbia plans of football. LOOK AT THIS GERMAN FOOTBALL SO LOVELY TO WATCH

  17. Kwabena says:

    Milo and AA will get the job done to our satisfaction. Thanks GFA for briging back the Special One.

  18. Popito says:

    I am really happy best manager Milo. Milo is back discipline is back in the blackstars. All the blackstars player love Milo

  19. ROCK, Australia says:

    I think Milovan Rajevac should be appointed as the technical adviser of the Black Stars. He is the best Coach Ghana have ever had and he deserves it.

  20. Kwabena says:

    @ selfmade….Milo is not a useless and clueless coach as u put say.

  21. selfmade says:

    Kwabena

    Mate, we have tried this coach before and is about we move on to better things! He has done his best for us and is that time, we try other coaches/technical directators from other countries too!

    Since germany won the WC, alot of coaches has lauded the Germans for their tactical game play and most of the seasonal European coaches are urging their nations to learn from the Germans too and this is what I want my country to copy too!

    Milo is a decent coach but Ghana has OUTGROWN HIM! We no more the underdogs we used to be and is about that time, we hire a technical directator who understands the modern tactical game!

    Milo ever since his departure from Ghana, has been fired by all the countries he has coached and this should give us a clue as to who he is tactically!

    A lot of people are saying that AA is clueless but what they have forgotten to say is that, AA is an apprentice of Milo and hence if AA is clueless, his master is not good too!

    Germany is the way to go because they understand the tactical game plan than another other nation on earth!

    A Germany technical directator ll bring effectiveness, efficiency and discipline to our game and when those combined with our natural ingenuity with the ball, we ll be the team to beat!

    We HAVE TO MOVE AWAY FROM MILO because we have OUTGROWN HIM AS A TEAM!

  23. Barnabas Senyo says:

    Why can’t we go for a tip Germany coach?

  24. Barnabas Senyo says:

    Why can’t we go for a too German coach?

  25. Papi says:

    Milo did very good job for Ghana national team and for Ghana nation it self! Without his help we would not have reached the top 5. Whatever you people say about Milo, I respect him and wish him to earn as much money as he wish! Don’t judge people who did something for us. He does not hate the ghanian people, more less, he loves and I think that he showed it very well! Anyhow, PEOPLE judge your own way of living not others! And let profesionals to do their job
