Newly appointed Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac will earn $30,000 as monthly salary after signing a one-and-a-half-year deal with the Ghana Football Association.

The tenure of agreement is for a year, however, if is able to qualify for the World Cup tournament in Qatar, the contract will be extended to 2023.

The Serbian coach replaces coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor who was sacked by the FA over an uninspiring performance in the World Cup qualifiers.

The former Algerian coach will be assisted by Ghanaian duo of Otto Addo and Maxwell Konadu.

The domestic football governing body axed Akonnor and his two assistants last week following the team’s poor start to the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Rajevac’s first assignment is a doubleheader World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe next month.

Ghana are currently second in the standings after two rounds of the qualification matches of the global tournament.

The Serbian has been tasked to lead the Black Stars to a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations triumph in Cameroon next January and also qualify the team to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Rajevac, in his first reign as Ghana’s coach, was named African Coach of the Year in 2010 after impressive outings at the AFCON and World Cup respectively.

The 67-year-old made history by leading the Black Stars in 2010 to reach the quarter-finals at the World Cup in South Africa.

Few months earlier, he led Ghana through to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) in Angola in which they fell to Egypt.
