The former Valencia and Saudi Arabia coach is the latest to long list of trainers vying for the West African top job following the reported sacking of Serbian Milovan Rajevac last Saturday.

Although not official, Rajevac’s job became available following a disappointing campaign with Ghana at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon where the Black Stars were booted out of the group stages after defeats to Morocco and debutants Comoros and a draw against Gabon.

The under-fire Serbian tactician is set to submit his technical report to the Ghana Football Association(GFA) after which an official pronouncement is expected to be made on his future.
