Lawyer and former president of the Ghana Boxing Authority (GBA), Moses Foh Amoaning has claimed that the sacking of Milovan Rajevac was orchestrated by his former agent.
Milovan Rajevac was relieved off duties as head coach of the Black Stars following Ghana’s poor display at the just ended African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
According to Moses Foh Amoaning, Milo’s sacking was orchestrated by one Goran Milovanovic who used to be the agent of the Serbian gaffer but fell out with him after his first stint with the Black Stars in 2010.
“A lot of the noise to sack Milo was orchestrated and you know it Paul, people paid to have these things done. Even before the man was appointed, he had a problem with his agent Goran so a lot of the noise you heard before his appointment was orchestrated by Goran.”
“Because they had a problem, Goran, first of all, wanted to make sure that he was not appointed and when he got the job, he said I’m going to make sure that you go away and these are facts that you can go and check,” he said on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana as quoted by Ghanaweb.
Moses Foh Amoaning added that the FA should have been a little patient with Milovan Rajevac.
“The GFA should have waited a little before. Milovan didn’t have enough time to prepare for the AFCON. They shouldn’t have sacked him after the AFCON if they wanted the man to compromise about his salary. At least he should have played the world cup qualifiers,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Ghana FA has announced Otto Addo as temporal head coach of the Black Stars. Didi Dramani and George Boateng were named Assistants and Chris Hughton was named Technical advisor.
The four man team has been put together to take charge of the two matches against rivals Nigeria. The Black Stars will take on the Super Eagles at the Cape Coast stadium on March 24 before travelling to Nigeria for the 2nd leg at the Abuja Sports stadium on Sunday, March 27, 2022.
A win against Nigeria will earn Ghana a place a the 2022 World Cup to be played in Qatar between 21 November to 18 December.
