We can’t sack Milovan Rajevac, GFA President has said.
This comes after a public backlash over their disappointing show at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Ghana endured their biggest heartbreak in the tournament in Cameroon following a disappointing 3-2 defeat to Comoros on Tuesday.
The President of Ghana Football Association(GFA), Kurt Okraku in a new interview accepted blames for the abysmal performance and early exit of Black Stars in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
The president while speaking on Asempa FM stated that despite the public request for the immediate dismissal of the coach that would be impossible.
He explained that;
“It is important we have cool heads, engage and take the right decisions for Ghana”
“Milovan is the ultimate selector of players for the national team. When he names his squad, he sends it to a committee and justifies his call-ups to them. Nobody selects players for the coach,”
“Any Ghana coach that allows people to select players for him doesn’t deserve to coach the Black Stars.
“Milovan and his assistants selected the players and gave us the best players available at this time. He selected players who are very dedicated and ready to serve our dear nation.”
He also added that
“It didn’t work. I’m a leader of the family, I take full responsibility but also our collective responsibility to remain calm to support this gallant… or players who have offered themselves to serve our country.
“They need support so they can grow and win trophies for Ghana. For those who were not ready to serve Ghana we cannot force them, of course, these are the players who have dedicated themselves to the national calls and who want to sacrifice even in difficulties and I’m saying this group of players were ready to sacrifice their blood for Ghana.”
