( Milovan Rajevac Salary) —A signing fee of $100,000 and $30k per month has been agreed between the Ghana Football Association (GFA) and the Government for the appointment of Milovan Rajevac as coach of the Black Stars for two years.
The Serbian trainer gets $5,000 more than his predecessor, Charles Kwablan Akonnor who coached the Black Stars for almost two years.
Having arrived in Ghana late Sunday, the Serbian will be officially unveiled as Black Stars manager at Accra’s Alisa Hotel on Friday.
His appointment as Black Stars trainer will boost the team’s hopes of competing at the next African Cup of Nations (AFCON) next year in Cameroun.
In addition, he is expected to steer the team toward a FIFA World Cup qualification by 2022, following a poor start to the campaign that saw the team narrowly beat Ethiopia 1-0 in Accra and lose by the same margin against South Africa.
The 67-year-old coach returns to the role after serving as Black Stars coach during the 2010 African Cup of Nations in Angola and the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
During his tenure with the Black Stars, he also led them to their maiden African Nations title in 2009.
His first job with Ghana ended in 2010 when he was hired by Saudi Arabia’s Al-Ahli Jeddah.
He has since also been employed by Qatar, Rudar Velenje, Algeria, and Thailand.
