BLACK STARS COACH, MILOVAN RAJEVAC SACKED AFTER GHANA’S WOEFUL PERFORMANCE AT AFCON

Information gathered by NKONKONSA.com reveals the Ghana Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac has been sacked. This follows the poor performance of the Ghanaian team in the ongoing AFCON 2022 as they couldn’t even go past the group stages of the competition.

After Ghana’s loss to Comoros, the Ministry of Youth and Sports had an emergency meeting with the GFA(Ghana Football Association) asking them to reconstitute the Black Stars Management team. They also asked the FA to review the work and capacity of the Black Stars technical team led by coach Milovan Rajevac.

In a press statement sighted by JoyNews, 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 GFA was therefore also directed to “review the work and capacity of the current Black Stars’ technical team, led by the head coach, Milovan Rajevac.”

According to Joy Sports, the GFA at the meeting was hesitant about axing the Serbian particularly because of the severance fee the country is liable to pay – an estimated minimum of $270,000 which could rise to $370,000 if a sign-on fee is included.

Before the meeting, the Sports Ministry expressed its disappointment in the senior national soccer team for its abysmal performance at the ongoing AFCON tournament in Cameroon.
The Black Stars failed to advance from the group stage in the tournament after losing to Comoros in its final game in Group C.

The team exited the tournament with a point. They also lost to Morocco in their opening game and drew with Gabon in their subsequent game.
A statement from the Ghana Football Association announcing Milovan’s removal is expected soon.

Following this, the GFA(Ghana Football Association) had no option other than to lay Coach Milovan Rajevac off his duties.

THOMAS PARTEY APOLOGIZES TO GHANAIANS FOR BLACK STARS’ POOR PERFORMANCE AT AFCON 2022

After the Black Stars of Ghana lost their final group stage match to Comoros, Partey didn’t return to Ghana with the team but flew straight to London to join the ‘gunners’ as they prepared for a clash with Liverpool on Thursday night in the second semi-final leg of the EFL Cup.

A couple of hours after the game, several football lovers criticized him for running to London right after Ghana exited the AFCON 2022 and also putting up an abysmal performance including getting a red card in the Arsenal game.

Partey mentioned in his post that he wasn’t very happy with how things turned out in the AFCON for Ghana; and continued by saying he could have been more careful in the Arsenal game considering being booked already.

Well, let’s just make all these slide and give Partey another chance to prove himself for country and club and we know he’ll deliver, especially now that we’re preparing for the FIFA World Cup.

GHANA SUFFER 2-3 LOSS TO COMOROS, CRASH OUT OF AFCON 2021

Ghana failed to make it through the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations group stage after losing 3-2 to Comoros on Tuesday.

The Black Stars required an out and out success and expected a great outcome in the other game among Morocco and Gabon.

Their plan started falling apart as early as the 3rd minute from a well taken strike by El Fardou Ben. Things went from bad to worse in the 25th minute after VAR judged captain, Andre Ayew’s foul on Comoros goalkeeper to be worth a red card.

Comoros doubled their lead in the 62nd minute through another fine strike that left goalkeeper, Joseph Wollacott helpless.

Ghana began a fight back in the 64th minute and drew the game level in the 77th, but lack of concentration was their undoing as they conceded, yet again, in the 85th finishing at 2-3 in favour of the debutants.

The four time winners end the group stage at the bottom of the table with just one point.

 

GHANA DID NOT DESERVE TO WIN…THE COACH IS A DISASTER – Gabby Otchere Darko

A key member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Otchere-Darko, has castigated the Ghana’s Black Stars for their poor performance against Gabon during the ongoing African Cup of Nations.

A fine late strike from Jim Allevinah gave Gabon a huge 1-1 draw against Ghana and put them on the cusp of the knockouts at the Africa Cup of Nations.

According to Gabby Otchere Darko in a tweet following the final whistle in yesterday’s game, Milovan Rajevac, the Black Stars’ coach, he claims, is a ‘disaster’ who was content with the team leading by one goal to nil.

Gabby tweeted following the match, “Ghana deserved to lose. That straightforward. There was only one moment of genius – the Ayew goal.

“The remainder was a jumble of aimless mediocrity. Quite frankly, the coach is a disaster. He was content to sit dangerously on a one-nil lead, and it ended predictably in our favor. Sad!”

We’ll play our final game against Comoros in the hope of securing a berth in the next round.

WE CAN’T ALWAYS BE FUELING V8 JUST TO BE CARRYING YOUR CHAIR AROUND IN 2022 – EDUDZI TELLS AKUFO-ADDO

A member of the National Democratic Congress NDC communications team, Edudzi Tamakloe has kicked against the decision by the President, Nana Akufo Addo to carry his chair around everywhere he goes this year like he did in 2021.

Edudzi, however, intimated that it’s not a problem for the President to carry his chair around but the fact that they’ve dedicated V8 only to carry the chair is the most worrying thing and also disrespectful to people who voted for him.

Speaking on Metro TV, he emphasized that the president has no right go whatsoever to use the public funds to support his spiritual life even if it’s a direction from his prophet.

Edudzi Tamakloe stated that there’s no justification for the V8 being provided for carrying the president’s chair around looking at the taxes the government is imposing on the people of Ghanaians.

According to him, it’s not the taxpayer’s responsibility to fund the spiritual life of the president hence if Akufo-Addo has his spiritual direction it shouldn’t be the burden of Ghanaians who pay the taxes.
