Nana Akomea, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Okai-koi South said categorically that Black Star’s coach Milovan Rajevac should be sacked.
He made this known on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana show hosted by Shamima Muslim when he was asked to comment on the performance of the Black Stars in the tournament.
Nana Akomeah explained that he felt Prince Tagoe was one lousy player who needed to be taken off the field. “Milovan’s timing for substitution is very poor. Why will you let a player who is not performing well play full time when you have other players on the bench? Of what use is a winger who can’t even cross the ball for strikers from the wings?” He said.
He further asked that why are we keeping the coach if the team is not playing well.
In another development coach Milovan Rajevac insisted that he will carry on with his traditional 4-3-2-1 formation in our pending matches.
He further defended his tactical formation, which the critics cited for Ghana’s inability to score more than one goal in a match.
Coach Milovan is more concerned about his team’s conversion rate; he does not only consider the 4-3-2-1 formation as the most progressive, especially, at such high levels, but rather blames the frontline players for not being able to utilize their chances created in matches.
Addressing the issue of Ghana’s poor conversion rate during matches, Milovan explained that the players sometimes hold on to the ball for too long. He noted that in our match against USA on Saturday it is very important that the Black Stars scored a ‘proper goal’.
