Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac is believed to be the frontrunner of more than 50 coaches who applied to replace CK Akonnor as Ghana Black Stars head coach.
According to Ghanasoccernet, the 67-year old is the one Ghana FA chose to take over the national team after CK Akonnor’s sacking on Monday afternoon following Black Stars’ loss to South Africa in World Cup qualifiers.
Rajevac had a first stint with Ghana between 2008 and 2010 and has been instrumental for the West African country as he led them to AFCON 2021 final in Egypt as well as the 2010 World Cup quarter-final in South Africa.
My Joy Online added that Milovan Rajevac is expected to sign a two-year contract with Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Moreover, his salary would be in the region of $45,000 per month at the Black Stars helm.
In addition, the three-member Committe settled by Ghana FA has also contacted two times AFCON winner and former Zambia and Ivory Coast coach Hervé Renard.
However, the latter’s reported $70,000 monthly salary at Saudi Arabia where he is currently working, appeared to be a barrier for his comeback to Africa.
