AFCON 2021: “I’m Not A Magician To Perform Within 3 Months, I’ll Not Resign” – Milovan Rajevac

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has refused to accept responsibilities of the Black Stars disgraceful exit from the 2021 African cup of nations in Cameroon.

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 Comoros.

This is the Comoros first time qualifying to the AFCON, and they lost their 2 group games against Morocco and Gabon without scoring a goal, but ended up by 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.

A journalist questioned Milovan after the game whether he will resign, and he said;

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.”
