Attuquayefio Tasks Rajevac

Milovan Rajevac Former Black Meteors coach, Jones Attuquayefio has urged Black Stars coach, Milovan Rajevac to vary his tactics if he wants to lead Ghana to a second World Cup appearance in South Africa in 2010.

The celebrated former best coach of Africa described the Serbian's tactical play as a major concern, stressing that it was a contributory factor to Ghana's 0-2 loss to DR Congo in the final of the African Nations Championship (CHAN).

Speaking on Joy News yesterday, the technical head of Liberty Professionals also blamed Ghana's defeat on poor substitutions on the part of the Rajevac-led technical team.

The Serbian himself had been criticized by a cross-section of Ghanaians for the kind of roles assigned players on the field. His decision to play one lone striker in the first two matches in the competition had also been chastised by some connoisseurs of the game.

Coach Attuquayefio shared some sentiments with those assertions, explaining that Ghanaians are noted for playing two strikers upfront.

He also welcomed the good display of football by Charles Taylor and Rahim Ayew, son of Abedi Pele Ayew, adding that Taylor's comeback is a good omen for the country as he is not only technically gifted but talented as well.

Other players such as Osei Bonsu of Hearts of Oak have also shown their readiness to become good materials for the Black Stars.
