AFCON 2021: “Comoros Deserves The Win, My Target Is The World Cup” – Coach Milovan Boldly Tells Ghanaians
Milovan Rajevac has audaciously told Ghanaians after the Black Stars’ last game against the Comoros at the 2021 African cup of nations in Cameroon that his side deserved the defeat, contrary to the angry roars of football lovers on the internet.
The West African powerhouse eliminated from the tournament after getting only a point from their 3 games in the group stage.
They lost their opening game by 1-0 to Morocco, draw 1-1 to Gabon, and lost 3-2 to the Comoros.
This is the Comoros first time qualifying to the AFCON, and they lost their 2 group games against Gabon and Morocco respectively without scoring a goal, but ended up disgracing Ghana 3-2 in the last group c match.
And this was the first time the four times African champions have crashed out of an AFCON without a single win, and the first time they’ve exited at the group stage since 2006.
Speaking during a press conference after their disgraceful defeat to the Comoros, the Ghana Black Stars coach said he wasn’t fully prepared for the AFCON because of the short period of time at his disposal for its preparations.
Adding that he came to Ghana just three months ago, hence Ghanaians shouldn’t expect him to do magic with the national team as the world cup is his target because he has used the AFCON as the case study to assess the team and know its shortcomings.
A journalist questioned Milovan whether he will resign, and he said he won’t resign either today or tomorrow, and he will strategically guide the Blackstars to do wonders at the forthcoming WorldCup.
“I came to Ghana just three and a half months ago, don’t expect magic.
“I will stay and lead Ghana in the World Cup qualifiers in March. I believe we have a team that can become stronger and get to the World Cup.
“My target was to qualify Ghana for the World Cup, this AFCON is my primary target. I am looking forward to qualifying Ghana for the world cup in March.”
The draw for World Cup play-offs is scheduled for Saturday, January 22, 2022.
