Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kurt Okraku believes Milovan Rajevac was the right man for the Black Stars job when he was appointed in September 2021.

The 68-year-old was re-appointed by the GFA on an initial one-year deal, which will be automatically extended until February 2023 if he can lead Black Stars to the World Cup finals in Qatar.

Rajevac, who qualified Ghana to the final play-offs of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers took over from CK Akonnor whose contract was terminated by the FA earlier in September.

However, the four-time African champions suffered a humiliating group-stage AFCON exit following their 3-2 defeat to debutants Comoros.

“Everybody has the right to pour out his or her heart and it is not for me to stop people from speaking what they think is the truth,” Okraku told Asempa FM.

“In coaching, there are a lot of top-line managers who have failed in certain levels but made it in other ways. Rafael Benitez is one, Jose Mourinho is one.

“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”.

The Black Stars finished bottom of Group C with only one point after three matches played.
