President of the Ghana Football Association, Kurt Okraku says there was optimism Milovan Rajevac was the best person to take over the Black Stars coaching role following the sacking of Charles Kwablan Akonnor.
Rajevac was reappointed in September after the GFA parted ways with Akonnor after a series of unconvincing performances in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The Serbian led Ghana to secure a World Cup play-off spot after beating South Africa in the last game. However, the team’s performances in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations, leading to their exit has raised questions about the gaffer’s return into the dugout.
Speaking on Asempa FM following the Black Stars’ shocking group stage exit, Okraku said, “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.”
The GFA president also revealed they had hopes of seeing the team return to its best under Rajevac having seen him do well during his first stint in Ghana.
“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. I’m saying that we believed that Milovan was the right man that’s why we gave him the job. We believed,” he concluded.
Ghana managed just one point from their three games in Group C, losing to Morocco and Comoros in the process while securing a draw against Gabon as they finished bottom in the group.
