Ghana sacks coach Rajevac after Cup of Nations exit

Ghana have confirmed the sack  of coach Milovan Rajevac after their shock early exit from the  ongoing Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.

Rajevac had been expected to be sacked after Ghana lost 3-2 to the Comoros Islands last week to finish bottom of their opening round group.

His sacking was confirmed after a meeting of the Ghana Football Association’s executive the previous day.

“After considering three reports and engagements with key stakeholders, the GFA has decided to end its relationship with Rajevac.

“The GFA will soon announce the reconstituted technical team and management committee after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders.”

The 68-year-old Rajevac had only been back in the post for four months, in his second stint in charge of the Black Stars.

He was rehired in September 2021 after Ghana made a poor start to the 2022 World Cup qualifiers but recovered to win their group and qualify for the March playoffs, where they will take on Nigeria.

Rajevac was coach when Ghana reached the World Cup quarter-finals in 2010, before going on to national team jobs in Algeria, Qatar and Thailand.

The Serbian is the first managerial casualty of the Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.
