New Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac has firmly insisted that he will be responsible for player call-ups to the Black Stars.
The 67-year-old makes a return to the job he abandoned in 2010 just days after Ghana exited the FIFA World Cup tournament at the quarter-finals following an impressive showing at the Mundial.
The former Algeria head coach arrives at the scene at a time when player selection into the various national teams has dominated the discussions among home fans.
But, the head coach has assured fans he will be solely responsible for selecting players for the national team.
“It is very important to build and maintain a good relationship with the leadership of the GFA. But when it comes to the selection of players into the team is my responsibility,” he responded to a question posed to him by broadcast journalist Ohene Brenya Bampoe.
Since leaving the shores of the country, the Danubian tactician has managed several top-notch posts in football including taking over the head coach jobs at Algeria, Qatar, and Thailand.
However, his last active spell in the dugout came 2 years ago when he lasted just six months as Thailand head coach. He was sacked following a loss to India.
Rajevac replaces Charles Akonnor who was booted out of the hot seat 11 days ago by the GFA.
The Serbian will be assisted by Borussia Dortmund’s Head of Talent Development Otto Addo as well as former Asante Kotoko head coach Maxwell Konadu.
