Ghana officially sacks Milovan Rajevac after his knock out in group stage of the CAN.

The coun­try’s foot­ball asso­ci­a­tion (GFA) dis­cussed the 68-year-old Ser­b’s posi­tion for the first time just three days after the shock 3–2 loss to Comoros sealed their fate at the tour­na­ment in Cameroon.

“This fol­lows the receipt of the tech­ni­cal report from the coach and the report from the man­age­ment com­mit­tee, fol­low­ing Ghana’s ear­ly exit from the Africa Cup of Nations,” a GFA state­ment said on Wednesday.

“The GFA will soon announce the recon­sti­tut­ed tech­ni­cal team and man­age­ment com­mit­tee after full engage­ment with all rel­e­vant stakeholders.”

Ghana will need to have a coach in place ahead of their cru­cial 2022 World Cup play-off against arch-West African rivals Nige­ria in March.

The Black Stars endured a dis­mal tour­na­ment in Cameroon under Raje­vac, tak­ing just a sin­gle point from games against Moroc­co, Gabon and Comoros and fin­ish­ing bot­tom of Group C.

Comoros’ defeat in a game they need­ed to win to qual­i­fy for the round of 16 marked one of the low­est points in nation­al team history.

Raje­vac was reap­point­ed for his sec­ond term as Ghana boss in Sep­tem­ber 2021 and did well ini­tial­ly, suc­cess­ful­ly guid­ing Ghana through the sec­ond round of World Cup qual­i­fy­ing with a con­tro­ver­sial vic­to­ry over Africa from South.
