OCT 19, 2021 LISTEN

Milovan Rajevac, the head coach of the senior national team, the Black Stars, has said he is very motivated to steer Ghana to the World Cup for the second time in Qatar.

Rajevac 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.

According to the 67-year-old coach, no one seem motivated to lead Ghana to the World Cup again than he is and said he had done it before stating that it was his greatest achievement in his career with the Ghana national team.

“I was aware of the challenge and the task because nobody was more motivated than me to go to the World Cup especially to take Ghana because this was the biggest success in my career in Ghana and we have a history”, the coach said during an interview with the Ghana FA website.

Milo, as the Serbian coach is affectionately called, said he always reminisce Suarez’s handball that denied the Black Stars from progressing to the semifinal of the 2010 World Cup and believe they can improve upon it this time around.

“Very often I rewind in my mind the match against Uruguay and the famous penalty so this is something that drives me forward and I believe we can achieve even more so the motivation is high and nobody wants this more than me”, he noted.

The Black Stars with two games to end their 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers sit 2nd with 9 points and will play Ethiopia away and host South Africa at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in the final Group G game next month.
