Ghana Football Association (GFA) Executive Council member Randy Abbey believes Milovan Rajevac did well as Black Stars coach during his brief tenure and should be commended.
Abbey believes the Serbian deserves credit for Ghana’s 2022 World Cup qualification because he ensured the team reached the final stage of the qualifiers.
Rajevac, who was re-appointed in September of last year, qualified Ghana for the play-offs before being fired in February following the Black Stars’ shock exit from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Abbey was one of three members appointed by the GFA to find a new coach after Charles Akonnor was fired.
Rajevac, who had impressed in his first stint, was recommended by the committee and approved by the GFA.
“Remember that Milovan Rajevac helped Ghana to reach the playoffs of the 2022 World Cup. Without him, we would not have been there,” he told Accra-based Original FM.
“Yes, we had a bad Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] but he must be applauded for the work he did with the team by leading the team to the playoff,” he added.
Rajevac’s successor Otto Addo defeated Nigeria in the play-offs to secure qualification for the World Cup in Qatar.
