We Can’t Sack Milovan Rajevac Yet - GFA President Tells Angry Ghanaians

The Ghana Football Association’s president, Kurt Okraku, acknowledges it’s tough to explain the Black Stars’ poor performance at the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon.

Since the West Africans debuted in 1963, the four-time AFCON champions have had their weakest AFCON campaign.

With just one point from three games and a -2 goal deficit, the Black Stars finished third in Group C, behind Morocco, Gabon, and debutants Comoros.

In the middle of the country’s football community’s general discomfort, the president of Ghana’s football regulating body confessed that it is tough to explain why the country missed the event.

We Can’t Sack Milovan Rajevac Yet - GFA President Tells Angry Ghanaians

President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku has called for calm heads after the disappointing performance of the Black Stars in Cameroon.

The GFA President said immediate calls for the dismissal of coach Milovan Rajevac is premature.

Speaking in an interview on Accra based Asempa FM, he said the FA will take the right decision for Ghana.

“It is important we have cool heads, engage and take the right decisions for Ghana”, he said.

Kurt Okraku also reiterated that the coach was the one who selected the players for the tournament.

“Any Ghana coach that allows people to select players for him doesn’t deserve to coach the Black Stars.

“Milovan and his assistants selected the players and gave us the best players available at this time. He selected players who are very dedicated and ready to serve our dear nation.”

Mr. Okraku further stated that he understands the frustration of Ghanaians after the national team’s disastrous showing at the AFCON.
