President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mr. Kurt Okraku, has indicated to Ghanaians that the current Black Stars coach, Milovan Rajevac, is one of the best coaches to ever work with the country’s national team.
Coach Milovan is currently facing backlash from football-loving Ghanaians for his team’s abysmal performance which eventually led to their early exit from the on-going African Cup Of Nations tournament in Cameroon.
Many prominent Ghanaians, including Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, have since been calling for the dismissal of the coach who once coached the national team from 2008 to 2010.
But for the GFA boss, calling the Serbian coach back to Ghana to take charge of the Black Stars, is a good decision, as he said he [Coach Milovan] is one of the best coaches the national team has ever had.
“By far and by way of data, coach Milo has been one of the best coaches Ghana has had. We believed in Milo and gave him the job unfortunately it didn’t work and we take responsibility for that,” Kurt Okraku said when speaking on Asempa FM in an interview monitored by this portal.
Commenting on arguments being fronted by some Ghanaians that Coach Milovan did a bad job in terms of player selection, the GFA boss said; “I have heard a lot of commentary on coach Milo’s selection and I wonder why it is so. Every player selected deserved the call-up. Milo selected the best Ghanaian players around.”
Meanwhile, the team have arrived in the country at about 3am on Thursday, January 20, from Cameroon, a country troubled with violent secessionist activities in the South.
