Charles Kwablan Akonnor was sacked on Monday after the West African country's poor start to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Several names have been mentioned, including former internationals, Otto Addo and Ibrahim Tanko.

However, the Football Association has decided to go in for an expatriate.

Another name that was on the table was former physical trainer of the Black Stars and two times AFCON winner, Herve Renard.

But it is understood that the FA could not match his high wage demands, hence the decision to appoint Milovan Rajevac.

Milovan Rajevac had a successful first stint as Ghana coach, leading the Black Stars to the finals of the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations and the quarter finals of the FIFA World Cup that same year.

Member of Parliament for Ningo Pampram, Samuel Dzata George, has stated that the Black Stars need to be disbanded after the sacking of coach C.K Akonnor.
