Milovan Rajevac has reportedly rejected the $270,000 compensation package offered by the Ghana Football Association following his dismissal as the head coach of the Black Stars.
According to a report filed by Classfmonline.com, the experienced Serbian tactician has rejected the initial severance package offered him by his employers.
However, the portal did not immediately reveal the basis for the rejection of the said amount by the embattled coach.
The Ghana Football Association, on Saturday, acted on the orders of the Ministry of Youth and Sports by pulling the trigger on Rajevac following the Black Stars’ early exit from the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).
Rajevac’s sacking comes a day after the Ministry of Youth and Sports told the GFA to “review” the work and capacity of the technical team of the Black Stars.
A statement issued by Minister of Sports Mustapha Ussif on Friday, 21 January 2022, said during “frank” and “forward-looking” discussions with the GFA, it emphasised “strongly the disappointment of the Ghanaian people and their government in the national team’s poor showing, ending in our group-stage elimination”.
“The Ministry made it clear to the GFA that the people of Ghana have lost confidence in the capacity of the current technical team of the Black Stars to deliver success”, the statement said.
Ghana exited the ongoing tournament in Cameroon without winning a game after losing to Morocco and Comoros and picking a draw against Gabon.
