Sports journalist and General Secretary of the Sports Writers Association of Ghana (SWAG), Charles Osei Asibey, has started a campaign for the dismissal of the coach of the senior national team of Ghana, Coach Milovan Rajevac.
“I have started a campaign to sack Coach Milo now. Sack Coach Milo now. #SackCoachMiloNow”, the SWAG Scribe announced on WoezorTV.
Coach Milo who was appointed to replace former Ghanaian international CK Akunor led the national team to its second elimination at the group stage of an Africa National Cup tournament at the group stage.
The Black Stars suffered their worst humiliation in recent years at the ongoing AFCON tournament, knocked out at the bottom of Group C with only one point. The Ghanaians lost their last game to Comoros, handing them their first win and first 3 points in the tournament, beating Ghana to 4th place in the group.
Echoing the views of those who fault the coach for the team’s disastrous performance, Charles said it is time for a new manager, cautioning that the players must be psyched and prepared for upcoming tournaments by a better and quality manager.
Speaking on WoezorTV’s AFCON Match Day Discussion after the Ghana versus Comoros match, Charles Osei Asibey said it is time for the Black Stars to start its preparations.
“Maybe we need to change the manager. We need to psyche the guys and tell them that look, you are new in this tournament, hardly do newcomers win. So, let’s go get prepared and come back.”
Mr. Osei Asibey in defending his position stated that the next competition in next year in Cote D’Ivoire and the team must be prepared for that and the qualifiers.
“If we are able to manage these guys well, if we are able to psyche them and get them a quality manager, by which time they would have had quality matches in Europe, they would have become tougher players. Then, we can go into Cote D’Ivoire and see what we can do.”
“His Excellency and the people who manage football in this country, I am a journalist, I am a football person, football means so much to us, we do not need that empty thing. If indeed we want to play well in the last qualifier, if indeed we want to get into Cote D’Ivoire, if indeed we want to prepare a quality team for the future, it must be done without this empty thing”.Share on:
