16604

Mixed reactions have continued to trail the sack of Ghana coach, Milovan Rajevac, just four days after the country’s disastrous outing at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, Cameroon.

According to reports on the country’s leading football news outfit (Ghanasoccernet.com), the decision to sack the coach was taken by the Ghana FA on 22nd of January.
This comes less than 12 hours after the Sports Minister ordered a massive overhaul of the team’s backroom staff over the Black Stars first round exit from Africa’s flagship football tournament.

The Serbian coach supervised one of Ghana’s worst performances at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.

The four-time AFCON champions managed to pick just a point in the competition in Group C with Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.

Ghana lost to Morocco and debutants, Comoros, in the group stage.

The Ghana FA and the technical team led by Coach Milovan Rajevac have come under intense pressure after the exit with calls from the fans for the team to be dissolved and the coach sacked.

After a stakeholders meeting between the Sports Ministry and the Ghana Football Association on Friday, the association was directed to terminate the appointment of Rajevac with immediate effect.
Some fans favour the sack while others do not.

Some of the reactions:

@Obong_ben:

We can all see where things work without sentiments. This same coach has won them trophies in the past but check out his last 3 games at the AFCON… Good one to the Ghana FA, let the right things be done. GrandPa Rohr worshipers should take several back sits and go join him in Germany if they so please.

@Joseph_Kay:

He didn’t win anything but did very well for them. This just to show that nothing lasts forever in football. This was the coach who put Ghana football on world map in 2010 when he led them to silver in AFCON qualified them for world cup for the first time and led them to quarter final before losing controversially to Uruguay. Remember Suarez drama then? This was a feat only achieved by Cameroon and I think Senegal in Africa. He was reappointed last year September after a non- overwhelming start to WCQ with their local coach and immediately turned things around qualifying them for playoff. His appointment looks like that of our Eguavon now, but see how it ends unbelievably. He still remains the best coach Ghana ever had, in fact, ever since he left after 2010 World Cup, Ghana football has been nosediving. A coach’s job is like that. At the time, he started well with same players but the unfortunate things happened and it is what it is. So, criticise Rohr less, it is one of those things in football.
Ghana suddenly realized that their white messiah was human after all… Lol.
Maybe now they will encourage themselves to “fail with their own” rather… Ghana exiting a competition with a single point… unheard of!

Africans should learn to put their house in order… fashion out a merit System devoid of sentiments at least to 95% and learn to set standards and minimum markers to their targets and lastly make it impossible for biases and needless sentiments… Sit back and watch how good their fortunes will turn!
