The Ghana Football Association on Friday confirmed Milovan Rajevac as the new head of the Black Stars.

The Serbian returns for a second spell after coaching Ghana between 2008 and 2010.

However, after leading Ghana to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup, the 67-year-old gaffer left his role after the GFA failed to grant his $100K salary demands.

On Friday, the Ghana Football Association confirmed that the new Black Stars coach would be on a $30K salary, which is far below his demands in 2010.

But responding to suggestions that he is desperate for the job, Milovan Rajevac says he returned because Ghana is his second home.

“I was not desperate for the Ghana job. Ghana is my second home and I was happy to get the opportunity to work in Ghana. I am ready for the challenge and I am happy to give my best,” Milovan Rajevac told the media.

The Serbian has been tasked to qualify the Black Stars to the 2022 Qatar World Cup and win the 2021 African Cup of Nations.

He will be assisted by former Asante Kotoko coach Maxwell Konadu and Borussia Dortmund assistant coach Otto Addo.
