Derek Boateng downplays Milovan Rajevac work with Black Stars at 2010 Fifa World Cup

Former Black Stars midfielder Derek Boateng says the team’s head coach at the 2010 Fifa World Cup, Milovan Rajevac did nothing special with the side.

Ghana finished in the quarterfinals of the competition in South Africa and became the third nation after Cameroon and Senegal to reach the stage.

In an interview with Asempa FM, Boateng played down the work of the expatriate coaches he worked with.

“All of the foreign coaches we had while with the Black Stars, including Milovan Rajevac, were clueless.

“To be honest, we had a great team. Milovan Rajevac and other foreign coaches did nothing out of the ordinary.”

Boateng continued by praising the work ethic of the players before and during the tournament.

“We trained as if we were playing a match, and every player worked hard to get into the starting lineup.

“Looking at the squad, there was serious competition in the team, and those foreign coaches did nothing in my opinion.”

Milovan Rajevac returned to coach the Black Stars at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and failed to qualify the team from the group stage.
