Ghana coach, Ratomir Dujkovic, says he is not certain about whether he will sign a new deal to manage the Black Stars.

Leading the Black Stars to the second round in their maiden World Cup appearance, the Serbian's deal with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) runs out in December.

“I don't know at the moment whether I'll stay or not,” Dujkovic told Tidesports source.

“Maybe, I will continue and maybe I won't”.

“I have a contract with Ghana until the end of year, so I will have to discuss things with the GFA chairman and see what the future will look like,” he said.

But Dujkovic claimed the fierce criticism he has received from a section of the Ghanaian media could force his hand.

“Some journalists have been against me from the first day that I have arrived in Ghana because they were against a foreign coach”.

“I have to say that this has been very, very difficult for me”.

“But my results have spoken for themselves, as to my capabilities as a coach.”

Dujkovic, in the frame to take over the Serbian national side, following the resignation of Ilija Petkovic, admits that he is interested in the post.

“I am one of the candidates after Mr Petkovic resigned and I would be proud to manage my country”.

“But I am not free at the moment, so we will have to see what happens.”
