The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has named 67-year-old Serbian Milovan Rajevac as the new coach for the Black Stars, its senior men’s national team.

Rajevac replaced former coach Charles Kwabena Akonnor who was sacked with his two assistants early this month.

He has signed a one-year contract with Ghana and will have Maxwell Konadu and former Ghanaian international Otto Addo as his assistants.

This is the second time the Serbian will be coaching Ghana’s senior national team, after guiding the Black Stars to the quarter-finals at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Rajevac’s immediate duty is to lead Ghana against Zimbabwe in the 2022 World Cup double-header qualifying match next month.(Xinhua/NAN)
