Former Ghana International defender, John Paintsil, believes the appointment of Milovan Rajevac as Black Stars new head coach is erroneous.
The Serbian coach is set to be announced by the Ghana Football Association as Ghana’s new Ghana head coach following the sacking of CK Akonnor over poor performance.
Akonnor was shown the exit after Ghana suffered a 1-0 loss to South Africa in the 2022 world cup qualifiers, having struggled to beat Ethiopia 1:0 in the first game at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.
Sports World Ghana understands that the 2010 World Cup gaffer will be put on monthly salary of $45,000.
Nonetheless, John Paintsil who was a key member of the Ghana squad under Milovan Rajevac believes the timing of of the return of his former boss is wrong and will be difficult for him to qualify Ghana for the world cup in Qatar.
Coach Rajevac headed the Ghana national team from 2008-2010 where he took the team to the World Cup quarterfinals in 2010. Early that year, he guided the Black Stars to their first Afcon final in 20 years.
“If it is true Milo is taking over the job then I will say the timing is wrong because how well does he know this current team,” Painstil said on Angel FM.
“Our time was different because all the players were already made and it will take only a miracle to help him qualify this team.”
Ghana currently have three points after two matches in the world cup qualifiers and will face Zimbabwe in next matches.
