The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has announced that the Three-Member Search Committee appointed by the FA to make recommendations for a new coach and Assistant coaches for the Black Stars has on Thursday, September 16, 2021 submitted their report to the FA.

The Committee made up of Vice President Mark Addo, Dr. Ransford Abbey and Alhaji Salifu Zida Shaibu was given three days to find a new coach and Assistant(s) for the Black Stars following the dismissal of Charles Akonnor on Monday.

Following the submission of the report, the next steps will include finding internal alignment with relevant stakeholders and decision making by the Executive Council before signing of contract, official announcement and unveiling.

Per reports, Serbian gaffer Milovan Rajevac is leading the race to be appointed new head coach of the Black Stars. Milo is highly regarded in the Ghanaian football terrain having managed the Black Stars between 2008-2010.

The Serbian gaffer led the Black Stars to the quarterfinals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, missing out on a place in the semifinals after losing on penalty shootouts to Uruguay.

He also led a young Black Stars squad to the final of the 2010 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Angola, where Ghana lost 1-0 to Egypt in the finals.

Ghana currently sit second in Group G for the World Cup qualifiers with 3 points after beating Ethiopia 1-0 and losing by similar score line to South Africa.

The Black Stars will return to action next month for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe in a double tie.

The first game between the two sides will take place in Ghana on Wednesday, October 6 and the second game in Harare on Sunday, October 10.
