GFA Boss Kurt Okraku Defends Milovan Rajevac’s AFCON Selection
Ghana Football Association President Kurt Okraku has defended Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac over his 2021 African Cup of nation selection.
Most Ghanaians always criticized the coach over his selection, but Kurt Okraku has defended him.
According to the Ghana FA boss, every player selected deserved the call-up, as he selected the best players around, but he’s wondering why some Ghanaians are criticizing the coach selection.
“I have heard a lot of commentary on coach Milo’s selection and I wonder why it is so, every player selected deserved the call-up, Milo selected the best Ghanaian players around,”Kurt said on Asempa FM.
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.
They are expected to arrive in Ghana today, Thursday, January 20.
