Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi says he will support the decision to bring in Milovan Rajevac as a technical support for coach Kwesi Appiah for the 2014 World Cup.
The Black Stars trainer is said to have asked his former boss to play an advisory role as Ghana makes a third successive appearance at the World Cup in Brazil.
Rajevac has been quoted in a Serbian newspaper that he is considering the offer to be part of a technical support team for coach Kwesi Appiah for the tournament in Brazil.
The Serbian trainer visited his former team in the lead up to Wednesday’s friendly against Montenegro and was also in the stands to see the game played in Podgorica.
Some Ghanaians have kicked against the possible return of the Serbian tactician to the Black Stars fold.
But Ghana FA boss Kwesi Nyantakyi says he will endorse such a move ones coach Appiah makes his reported intention official to the association.
“We all know the pedigree of Rajevac in football and therefore I will support the decision to include him in Ghana’s back room staff for the World Cup,” Nyantakyie told Kumasi-based Kessben FM.
“It may be that the coach [Kwesi Appiah] has had discussions with him [Rajevac] but Kwesi Appiah has not told me anything of the sort.
“I am in support of any decision from the coach to improve his technical team ones the person coming in is competent enough and ready to work for our success at the World Cup.
“And therefore the focus shouldn’t be that it is Milovan Rajevac but then what we can do to support the coach excel at the World Cup.”
Rajevac remains very popular amongst many Ghanaians due to his impressive work with the Black Stars during his two-year reign from 2008.
The Serbian coach who is currently unemployed led Ghana to the finals of the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations and almost guided the side to a historic semi final finish at the World Cup months later in South Africa.
