Sports Ministry directs GFA to reconstitute Black Stars’ technical team after poor performance at AFCON 2021
The Ministry of Youth and Sports has directed the Ghana Football Association to reconstitute the Black Stars’ technical team, led by coach Milovan Rajevac.
The directive was the outcome of an emergency meeting held on Friday, January 21, 2022 follow the team’s abysmal performance at the ongoing 2021 AFCON.
Black Stars failed to qualify to the round of 16 after losing 3-2 to Comoros.
An earlier release by the ministry registered the country’s disappointment after immense resources were made available to the squad “logistically and financially.”
In Friday’s release signed by the sector minister, Mustapha Ussif, it stated that, “the people of Ghana have lost confidence in the capacity of the current technical team of the Black Stars to deliver success.”
“The Ministry, therefore, asked the GFA to review the work and capacity of the Black Stars’ technical team led by the head coach, Milovan Rajevac.”
Sports enthusiasts and stakeholders have been calling for coach Milo’s dismissal and shake up in the GFA since the Stars’ early exit from the tournament.
