Rajevac keen to stay on
Milovan Rajevac wants to remain as Ghana coach, despite receiving several offers following a successful FIFA World Cup™.
The Serbian has seen his stock rise over the past month after leading the Black Stars into the quarter-finals in South Africa, where they were beaten on penalties. The west Africans surpassed all expectations, even without star midfielder Michael Essien of Chelsea, and their coach said: "I am still under contract with the Ghana Football Association.
"Although I have received some offers, I want to continue my work here. I am happy here. I want to state that I haven't mentioned anything about money and nobody has. Neither the GFA nor me have raised an issue about money."
Rajevac continued: "Although the way we lost was painful and shocking in the end, this will be great experience for the players and they have a lot of potential to achieve great things."
Rajevac's two-year contract with the Ghana Football Association comes to an end later in August, but his employers have already indicated they want him to stay on. He added: "It's a mutual thing over my contract and we would see how things go. For now, I am going on holiday but would resume work for the next game in August.
"There are a lot of good young players, so they already have a core of a team for 2014. I am happy with the talent available and want to work to achieve something greater than we did at the World Cup."
