Top Ghanaian coach says Milovan Rajevac will fail as returnee Black Stars boss

Former Great Olympics and Hearts of Oak coach, J.E Sarpong has insisted that Milovan Rajevac will be a total failure following his second coming as Ghana coach.

The 67-year-old signed a one-year deal on Friday with an option to extend and he was unveiled at the Ghana Football Association secretariat.

Milovan was brought on board to replace Charles Kwablah Akonnor and save the Black Stars from a poor start to the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers after picking only three points from two games.

However, Sarpong believes Milovan will fail this time although he led the Black Stars to reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup in 2010.

“He [Milovan Rajevac] can’t do anything for Ghana in his second coming,” Sarpong told Luv FM.

“He will be a failure. He is only coming to take money and go because he can’t help the country achieve success,” he added.

Milovan is expected to earn $30,000 every month which means that he will be earning $5,000 more than former coach Charles Kwablah Akonnor who was sacked a fortnight ago.

Morocco head coach Vahid Halilhodzic is the highest paid African coach as he is paid almost $90,000 while Carlos Queiroz of Egypt and Algeria coach Djamel Belmadi sit in second and third place respectively.

South Africa coach Hugo Broos and Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr are also in the list as they earn $50,000 and $55,000 respectively.

Milovan, who will be assisted by Legon Cities coach Maxwell Konadu and Borrusia Dortmund assistant coach Otto Addo, will be playing his first game next month against Zimbabwe at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

He will play his first away game four days later in Harare against Zimbabwe in the return fixture.

Milovan has been tasked to qualify Ghana to the 2022 Fifa World Cup and win 2021 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon next year.

He will earn $300,000 each if he is able to achieve any of the two targets set for him by Ghana Football Association.
