AFCON 2021: Ghana’s coach Milo sacked?

There are news reports that Ghana’s senior national team coach, Milovan Rajevac, has been sacked. There has been no official statement or confirmation yet, but the reports are sourcing the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

The news of Coach Milo’s dismissal follows the poor outing of the Black Stars at the ongoing AFCON 2021 in Cameroon and a Friday afternoon meeting called by the Ministry of Youth and Sports to discuss the future of the team.

An earlier statement signed by the Minister for Youth and Sports, Mohammed Ussif, said the ministry has informed the GFA that “the people of Ghana have lost confidence in the capacity of the current technical tea, of the Black Stars to deliver success.”

The Minister maintained that the GFA must review the work and capacity of the technical team led by Coach Milo.

It is not clear under what terms the GFA will be dispensing off the coach, but some reports say he has been offered a three-month salary in lieu, while others say he is due a sum of $270,000 being the remaining nine months of his contract.

Calls for the dismissal of the coach have been loud following the group stage exit of the Black Stars and the humiliating defeat at the hands of Comoros. The team finished at the bottom of the group.

Sports journalist and General Secretary of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), Charles Osei Asibey, was among the early campaigner for the dismissal of the coach.

“I have started a campaign to sack Coach Milo now. Sack Coach Milo now. #SackCoachMiloNow”, the SWAG Scribe announced on WoezorTV.
