Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac’s appointment as Black Stars head coach is imminent, and his accommodation has been sorted.
Rajevac is set for a second spell as Ghana coach, having enjoyed a great time between August 2008 and September 2010. His appointment comes after the Ghana Football Association (GFA) sacked Charles Akonnor over poor results.
The Serbian is expected to arrive in the country on Monday night, and already where he would be staying has been secured by his employers.
Rajevac will be housed in the apartment used by former coach Kwesi Appiah when he was Black Stars coach from 2017 to 2019. Akonnor was supposed to use the same apartment but did not and preferred to stay at his own house.
However, we understand that Sports Minister Mustapha Ussif has asked Milovan to occupy the house to save government from spending huge amounts on hotels.
Rajevac is expected to sign a two-year contract and will have Otto Addo as his assistant. Their duty is to qualify Ghana to next year’s World Cup in Qatar and win the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Milovan during his first spell achieve world cup qualification and took Ghana close to becoming the first African country to play in the semi-finals of the global competition. Also reached the Afcon finals and were beaten by Egypt with a late goal.
