Newly-appointed head coach of the Black Stars, Milovan Rajevac is set to home some huge amount of cash should the Black Stars win the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon].

The Black Stars are aiming to end their 39 years trophy drought in Cameroon next year.

The Ghana Football Association [GFA] on Friday announced the Serbian as the new head coach for the Ghana national team.

In revealing the financial aspects of their one-year deal with the Serbian stated that in addition to his $30,000 monthly salary, he stands to earn an extra $300,000 if the Black Stars win next year’s Afcon.

The 64-year-old will also earn $300,000 if he qualifies Ghana for the World Cup in 2022.

Milovan replaces CK Akonnor who kicked start Ghana's 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

Rajevac led Ghana to the final of the 2010 AFCON, where the Black Stars lost painfully to Egypt.

He will be hoping to go one better in 2021 and given the financial incentives, he will certainly be motivated to do so.

His immediate assignment is next month’s doubleheader against Zimbabwe. Ghana will take on the Warriors in Cape Coast on Saturday, October 9, before departing for the return leg in Harare three days later.

Rajevac will also lead Ghana to the Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.

He was the previous Ghana manager from the year 2008 until 2010, which included the World Cup in South Africa. Rajevac previously worked in Qatar, Algeria and Thailand.
