Serbian Milovan Rajevac was on Tuesday named as the new coach of Ghana’s senior national football team, the Black Stars, ending months of a search that brought out several names that turned out to be false.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) picked the 52-year-old Serbian of UEFA Cup campaigners FK Cacak Borak to succeed Frenchman Claude Le Roy who refused to extend his contract early this year.
The Serbian will still lead the club on Thursday against Bulgarian side Lokomotiv Sofia in their UEFA Cup (Union of European Football Associations) match before arriving in Ghana to sign a two-year contract which ends in August 2010.
“We have found the right man for the job and we will sign the contract with him when he arrives by the end of the week,” GFA vice president Fred Pappoe was quoted as saying.
The Serbian will be in charge of the Black Stars on 20 August when they play Tanzania in a friendly in Arusha. Panapress.
