Rajevac is reportedly the favorite to land the Black Stars Coaching job after the FA set up a three-member committee to search for a new Coach following the sacking of CK Akonnor.

Akonnor was sacked as Ghana Coach after the Black Stars lost to South Africa in the FIFA World Cup qualifier.

A committee was quickly set up in search for a new training with “MILO’s” name popping up as one of the candidates as reported in the media.

But fresh reports emerging claim a session of the Ghana FA officials have opposed the re-appointment of the 67-year-old who has been out of job since 2019 when he got sacked by Thailand.

The reports further stress that this was triggered after noticing that he (MILO) has also not have any successful stint since leaving Ghana 11 years ago.

After aiding Ghana to the finals of the 2010 Cup of Nations and quarterfinals at the FIFA World Cup that same year, the Coach left for Qatar where he spent just 6months on the job before his appointment as the National team Coach for Algeria. After just two matches with the North African side, the experienced trainer got his contract terminated before eventually earning an appointment from Thailand who later on sacked him after a defeat to India.

The situation could see the FA turn their attention to other candidates in line for the position.

Former Valencia Coach Miroslav Dukic as well as two-time Africa Cup of Nations winning Coach Herve Renard all have their names mentioned as candidates for the Black Stars job.

Already government have reportedly approved the appointment of an expatriate Coach.
