Serbian gaffer, Milovan Rajevac has been fired as coach of the Ghanaian national team after the squad’s humiliating first-round exit from the 33rd African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
A humbling 3-2 defeat to debutants Comoros Island in Garoua ended the hopes of the four-time African Champions, who were aiming to break a 40-year AFCON title drought, on Saturday.
The result ensured their elimination from the competition as they finished with only one point after losing 1-0 to Morocco and drawing 1-1 with Gabon in their first two games.
According to reports from Ghanaian Journalist SaddickAdams, who first reported the development on Twitter, the Serbian has also rejected a three-month payment from the Ghana Football Association in lieu of his early termination from the organization.
His statement continued by stating that the Football Association will pick an interim coach for their forthcoming World Cup qualifying playoff.
“THE MILO VAN IS GONE
Milovan Rajevac has been sacked as Ghana Coach
The Serbian will be paid 3 monthy salary in lieu (but he rejects)
FA to appoint caretaker coach for Worldcup Playoffs ASAP”, he tweeted.
Ghana will know their World Cup qualifying playoffs opponent today (Saturday) with draw set to be held in Cameroon.
