Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) Vice President, Fred Pappoe is optimistic the Black Stars will see massive improvement under Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac.
The 67-year-old has returned to coach the Black Stars for a second spell and will be assisted by Borussia Dortmund’s Otto Addo as well as former Asante Kotoko head coach Maxwell Konadu.
He signed a one-year renewable contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The former Algerian gaffer has been also been tasked by the country’s football governing body to win the AFCON and qualify the team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Pappoe, a member of the Black Stars management committee in an interview with Citi Sports stated that the Serbian coach’s work ethics, attitude and determination are the important ingredient the Black Stars need at the moment and is confident the national team will improve under him.
“This is an opportunity to work with a coach who has done it before and worked diligently,”
“Not just in terms of results but the way he applied himself to the job.
“His work ethic, his attitude, commitment and determination I believe are very important ingredients that the Black Stars need at this moment and that is what actually give me the excitement”
“Milovan does not have to talk or espouse his virtues for me to see because I witnessed it in his first stint and I believe if he applies the same level of discipline and control we saw him do in his first stint over here, I’m more than convince at least the team will be an improved team” he said.
Milovan Rajevac first assignment is against Zimbabwe next month in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
