It was learnt that the coach was sacked due to the poor performance of the team at the AFCON games.
Moreso, it was learnt that at the meeting, the ministry, on behalf of the government, further ordered the sack of the entire management team of the black stars.
Based on Ghana Pulse, the minister was quoted to have said, “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 Ministry, therefore, asked the GFA to review the work and capacity of the Black Stars technical team led by the head coach Milovan Rajevac.
“Following the emergency meeting, the Ministry, in accordance with its mandate, asked the Ghana Football Association to reconstitute the Black Stars Management Committee.”
