Former Ghana player John Painstil has described Milovan Rajevac as unpredictable and said that the Serbian is a “very difficult coach to deal with’.
Painstil knows Rajevac well as he was a part of Ghana’s team for in the tournament of 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
The right-back didn’t miss an opportunity to play because Black Stars became only the third African nation to reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup.
Rajevac was dismissed as Ghana coach several months after the tournament, but he was given the green light last month for another stint.
“Milovan Rajevac believes in more tactics, he looks at his opponent and builds from his side. He works on how to hurt his opponent,” Painstil reacted to Rajevac’s re-appointment.
“If you are a player, and you listen to his instructions, it works for the team. He makes sure players play to his roles and if you don’t play the way he wants he will sideline you and that’s how Milo operates.”
“He is a very difficult coach to work with, you can’t predict him, you will never know whether you are playing or not,” he added.
Rajevac has begun his second season with a bang with two consecutive wins against Zimbabwe to bring Ghana’s World Cup qualification hopes.
