Ghana sack coach Milovan Rajevac after poor AFCON show

Milovan Rajevac has been relieved of his duties as Black Stars of Ghana head coach following a poor run at the Africa Cup of Nations tournament. 

Ghana went into the tournament as one of the tournament favourites, but did not proceed from the group stages, with their last match a humiliating 3-2 defeat against Comoros. 

A statement from the  Ghana Football Association on Thursday read; 

"After considering three reports and engagements with key stakeholders, the GFA has decided to end its relationship with coach Milovan Rajevac," a statement said.

"The GFA will soon announce the reconstituted technical team and management committee after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders."

The 68-year-old took over the Black Stars for a second stint in September and was given the task of leading the Stas to the World Cup, as well as the AFCON.

Ghana are set to face Nigeria in the World Cup play-offs set for March, by which a new coach should be in place.
