Ghana FA President Kurt Okraku has called for support for under-pressure head coach Milovan Rajevac following Ghana’s shambolic campaign at the 2021 AFCON.
Passionate home fans in the West African nation are calling for the head of the Serbian after he led the four-time winners to their worst ever campaign at the tournament.
In a group featuring Morocco, Gabon, and debutantes Comoros, the Black Stars finished bottom of Group C with just a point from 3 games and a deficit goal aggregate of -2.
Rajevac, former head coach of Qatar and Algeria, was appointed back in September 2021 following the sacking of Charles Akonnor by the Ghana FA.
Following the poor display of the Black Stars in the three games at the AFCON, Ghanaian fans are calling for the sacking of the 2010 FIFA World Cup coach.
But, the Ghana FA President has jumped into his defence by insisting the 68-year-old must be appreciated.
“Let’s be fair to the man who brought so much glory and honour to the man who brought so much glory and honour to this country. Since Milovan took over this team he has never had 4 days of uninterrupted training with the team before. There are a lot of top-line managers who have failed in certain jurisdictions. Rafael Benitez is one. Jose Mourinho is one. We believed Milovan was the right man. That is why we appointed him,” he told Benedict Kwadwo Mensah on Asempa FM.
The Ghanaian contingent has arrived in Accra following their abysmal showing at the tournament.
