Kurt Okraku has unequivocally said the senior national team, the Black Stars will reap good results under the new coach, Milovan Rajevac.

The 64-year-old has returned to the West African country to begin his second stint with the Black Stars.

Milovan has signed a one-year renewable contract and has been tasked to qualify Ghana for the 2022 Fifa World Cup and win the Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon] scheduled to be hosted in Cameroon next year.

Speaking at the official unveiling of the Serbian at the premises of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Mr Okraku assured that with the experience of Milovan together with his two assistants, the Black Stars will excel.

“With his experience, I think the committee has done a good job,” the GFA boss said.

“With, Maxwell Konadu, Otto Addo and Milovan Rajevac in charge of the Black Stars, we believe our Black stars will go places,” he added.

Milovan previously coached the Black Stars in 2008 and finished as runner-up at the Cup of Nations in 2010, also narrowly missing out on a semi-final place in the 2010 World Cup to Uruguay.

He left the Ghana job in September 2008 and subsequently joined Al Ahli of Saudi Arabia.

He left that job to take up the job of the coach to the Qatari national team in 2011.

He has since coached Slovenia’s Rudar Velenje, the Algerian national team and Thailand. He was the Thailand coach between 2017 and 2019.
