Serbian Milovan Rajevac is officially back as head coach of the Ghana senior national team, the Black Stars.
The 67-year-old – who led the country to a CHAN final, an Africa Cup of Nations final and a 2010 World Cup quarterfinal berth during his first stint – returns after almost 11 years, replacing local man CK Akonnor who was sacked over a week ago.
Rajevac has accepted the Ghana job with the task of winning the upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon and securing qualification to the Qatar 2022 Fifa World Cup.
He is to walk home with a $300,000 bonus should he meet each of his two set targets.
The Uefa Pro License holder will be on a $30,000 salary.
The GFA contract with Milovan Rajevac is for a year but will automatically extend to February 2023 should he qualify Ghana to the Fifa World Cup.
Rajevac could thus lead the Black Stars to three major tournaments – the 2021 Afcon, the 2022 World Cup and the 2023 Afcon tournament.
Milo, as he is affectionately called, arrived at the GFA headquarters for the official announcement of his second coming in the company of coach Maxwell Konadu.
The former Ghana international is also back to the assistant coach post, a role he once held under Kwasi Appiah.
Another ex-international, Otto Addo – who works with German side Borussia Dortmund – also joins as one of two assistant coaches.
