Afcon Update: Ghana Sack Milovan Rajevac Following Group-Stage Exit

Ghana fired coach Milovan Rajevac eight days after the Black Stars were eliminated in the group rounds of the Africa Cup of Nations.

The country’s football association (GFA) first discussed the 68-year-old Serb’s position three days after they suffered a stunning 3-2 defeat to Comoros, thereby ending their chances of qualifying for the tournament in Cameroon.

“This follows the receipt of the technical report from the coach, and the report from the management committee, following Ghana’s early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations,” a GFA statement on Wednesday said.

“The GFA will soon announce the reconstituted technical team and management committee after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders.”

Rajevac was re-appointed for his second tenure as Ghana leader in September 2021 and initially did well, successfully managing Ghana through the second round of World Cup qualification with a disputed win against South Africa
