Ghana Black Stars’coach, Milovan Rajevac has incurred the wrath of football fanatics in the country following his abysmal performance in the ongoing AFCON tournament which has seen the national team exiting the tournament at an early stage without a win over any of the teams they met in the AFCON.
Morocco beat Ghana to a 1:0 scoreline and Gabon drew with Ghana in a 1:1 clash with the most humiliating defeat of all coming from a nation with a population less than 900000, the Comoros Islands, which triumphed over the Black Stars by scoring them 3 goals to 2 Tuesday evening.
The Serbian coach, Milovan Rajevac, popularly called ”coach Milo”, during his post-match interview was asked a series of questions from the press and his responses have attracted nationwide concerns.
One of his responses is that he was contracted to send the national team to the World Cup and until he does that, no amount of pressure whatsoever will get him to be ousted from his post as the Head coach of the Black Stars.
Coach Milo also sent a caustic reply to one of Ghana’s best sports journalist, Gary Al-Smith, after the latter queried him about whether or not he will resign as he makes history as the coach to have taken Ghana to the African Cup of Nations and returned home without securing a single victory.
A riled Milo, replied that he only wants to ”answer professional questions from professional journalists and that what Gary is saying is not professional question but rather he is an agenda journalist. He said he’s not here to answer from agenda-setting journalist”.
The 68yr old Serbian reportedly said during the post-match interview; “I came to this presser expecting questions on the match, not an agenda. I will not resign.”
Sports journalist, Saddick Adams revealed Milovan’s reply to Gary during an interview with Nana Yaw Kesseh on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo” Wednesday morning while the panel was discussing Ghana’s national team’s fiasco in the tournament.
He said the coach may have even insulted the journalists as his responses were made in Serbian language and his translator delivered it in English, which to him, may mean the translator sifted his (Milovan) responses.
