The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has appointed Serbian coach, Milovan Rajevac, as Black Stars handler.
The appointment was announced during the unveiling of the coach at a media conference held on Friday in Accra.
Rajevac who signed a 2-year contract worth $45,000 monthly salary has been given the target to win the 2021 Africa Nations Cup and qualify the Black Stars for Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.
According to reports in the West African nation, Rajevac will be $600,000 richer if he is able to achieve the set targets while a termination of the agreement by the GFA will be activated if he fails to win the AFCON and also pick a World Cup ticket.
Rajevac replaces his predecessor, Charles Akonnor, who was sacked alongside his assistants on Monday, September 14, 2021, after Ghana’s defeat by South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in a World Cup qualifier.
The first assignment for the new coach would be the doubleheader against Zimbabwe, with the first leg scheduled to hold at the Cape Coast Stadium on Saturday, October 9, 2021.
The Black Stars will open their camping ahead of the World Cup qualifiers next month.
