Following a shameful exist from the African Cup of Nations, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kurt Okraku has said that they won’t sack Coach Milovan Rajevac.

In an interview with Asempa FM in Accra, he stated that the FA will make the best decision for Ghana.

“It is important we have cool heads, engage and take the right decisions for Ghana”, he said.

Kurt Okraku also reiterated that the coach was the one who selected the players for the tournament.

“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,” the GFA boss told Asempa FM.

“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.”

Mr. Okraku also claimed that he understands Ghanaians’ dissatisfaction following the national team’s poor performance at the AFCON.

The worst AFCON humiliation ever in the tournament. Ghana was last in the Group C table log and never won any of the three matches and scored only one goal and had just a point.
