The Ministry of Youth and Sports has asked the Ghana Football Association [GFA] to review the position of Milovan Rajevac, who is the head coach of the Black Stars after the team’s poor showing at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON].

A statement signed by sector minister, Mustapha Ussif following a crunch meeting with officials of the FA on Friday said the people of Ghana had “lost confidence in the capacity of the current technical team of the Black Stars to deliver success” and asked the GFA to review the coach’s work.

Ghana, who were chasing a fifth continental title were crashed out of the tournament in Cameroon without winning a game, finishing bottom of Group C, a group that had Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.

The statement also urged the GFA to reconstitute the management committee of the Black Stars, which is currently headed by former Asante Kotoko Chief Executive, George Amoako.

Under the current arrangements, the Ministry of Youth and Sports pays the Serbian trainer’s $30,000 a month salary, even though he is an employee of the GFA.
