‘Ghana has talent; I’m here to make history’ – Milovan Rajevac
Milovan Rajevac has stated that he accepted the Ghana coaching job with the aim of making history.
The 67-year-old took over from Charles Kwabla Akonnor, who was sacked following the Black Stars’ poor start to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Rajevac, who first managed Ghana from 2008 to 2010, was unveiled last Friday by the GFA and he is already looking forward to getting started.
The Serbian said he aims to change the trend of unsuccessful second comings, which has been the bane of many managers across the world.
“I am here to prove that narrative wrong. If I did not believe that, I will not accept this challenge, this job so I will try to do my best,” he noted.
“The bar was set very high but we are here to make history. If you don’t believe that, you cannot achieve anything. I strongly believe in my players. I know how Ghanaians are talented and I know how much they can offer and if they believe in me the way I believe in them, we can achieve great things.”
Rajevac has put pen to paper on a one-year deal, which would be automatically extended to February 2023 if he qualifies the team for the 2022 World Cup.
He will take charge of his first games in October when Ghana faces Zimbabwe in a double-header World Cup qualifier.
Meanwhile, the Serbian coach will earn a monthly salary of $30,000 and will get an additional bonus of $300,000 if he wins the AFCON and another $300,000 if the Black Stars qualify for the World Cup in Qatar.
