Black Stars’ Serbian coach, Milovan Rajevac, would be paid a whopping US$270,000 (16.8 million Ghana cedis) after his dismissal as Black Stars coach on Saturday, January 22, 2022.
The Serbian coach came to Ghana in September 2021, and signed a one year contract with the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to have a second stint with the national team.
He led the Black Stars to the 2021 African Cup of Nations tournament in Cameroon. The team however, failed to make it out of the group stage, as they couldn’t win any of the three groups matches.
As a result, calls started coming in for the coach to be sacked, and the team’s management team sacked.
After a crunch meeting with the Ministry of Youth and Sports, which also demanded the dismissal of the coach, the GFA dismissed the coach, pending an official communique from the Kurt Okraku-led GFA.
However, per the contract signed between GFA and coach Milovan, the latter is to be paid US$30,000 per month, and as it is left with nine months for the contract to expire, it is obligatory for the government, through the Sports Ministry, to pay the remaining 9 month’s salary to the dismissed coach.
