The unsuccessful 2021 African Cup of Nations campaign in Ghana has been ascribed by former Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac on his lack of preparation time for his team.
The Serbian coach oversaw Ghana’s worst-ever performance at the African Cup of Nations as his team failed to win a single match while finishing last in their group at the 2021 tournament.
Speaking about Ghana’s performance in the competition that led to his dismissal, the Serbian indicated that he didn’t have as much time as he did during his previous tenure, which spanned from 2008 to 2010.
“Last time I didn’t have enough time to implement everything I wanted, like the first time in Ghana. In order to achieve great targets, time is of the essence,” he said in an interview with a Kumasi-based FM station.
He continued by saying that because he still had unfinished business with the squad, he wouldn’t decline a subsequent chance to lead the Black Stars for a third time.
“I have unfinished business with Black Stars. No one knows what the future holds. Ghana is my second home, so if another opportunity arises for me to come there, I will consider it seriously.”
