AFCON 2021: Ghana coach sacked ahead of 2022 World Cup play-off against Nigeria


Milovan Rajevac has been dismissed as Ghana’s head coach, following their early exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Black Stars finished bottom of their group, which had Comoros, Gabon and Morocco.

It is the first time they have failed to win at least one group stage match in their AFCON history.

“After considering three reports and engagements with key stakeholders, the GFA has decided to end its relationship with coach Milovan Rajevac.

The GFA will soon announce the reconstituted technical team and management committee after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders,” a statement after a meeting of the Ghana Football Association read.

The 68-year-old Rajevac had only been back in the post for four months, in his second stint in charge of the Black Stars.

Ghana must now move quickly to find a new coach ahead of their 2022 World Cup playoffs in two months, where they face West African rivals Nigeria.
