Serbian trainer, Milovan Rajevac will earn $300,000 should guide the Black Stars to the 2022 Fifa World Cup in Qatar.

This was made known by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) on Friday in a press conference.

Rajevac was re-appointed as the Ghana head coach at the same presser.

Aside from his $30,000 monthly salary, Rajevac is in line to make an extra $300,000 should the Black Stars make it to Qatar 2022.

Ghana sit 3rd with three points after two matches played under CK Akonnor.

Only the team that finishes top of the group will make it through to the final round of qualifiers.

Rajevac does have a massive financial incentive to pull it off, however with the GFA confirming the terms of his contract at today’s press conference.

This means Rajevac will get $600,000 if the Black Stars qualify for the 2022 World Cup and win the AFCON, with the Serbian also guaranteed a $300,000 payday if his side ends the nation’s 40-year drought.

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.
