Let’s not mince words, the coach of the senior national team, the Black Stars, Milovan Rajevac has absolutely nothing to offer the football team in the ongoing AFCON 2021 at Cameroon. For some reason, it seems he is still riding on his success with the team over twelve years ago.
However, what many people do not realize is that, the team he inherited in 2010 was group of talented players who knew one another from playing in either the local teams or junior national teams. For instance, John Mensah, Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari and others had played together in the starlet as well as liberty professionals. There was also some players who had been drafted into the team from the world-conquering Under-20 team of 2009 like Dede Ayew, Agyemang Badu, Dominic Adiyiah and others.There were also players who had been part of the 2006 Black Star team which played in Germany like Asamoah Gyan and John Paintsil and Stephen Appiah.
This was the wealth of talents he inherited. This was a group which was not only rich with talent but also natural leaders who played with their heart.
It just needed a little to nothing addition to make the team thrive.
His lack of initiative and often reactionary substitutions has been with him not only in his second coming but also from his first stints.
When he was asked yesterday by Ghanaian journalist Gary Al-Smith, why he often waits till the team concedes before he does a substitution, this is what he said; “We have the players we have at our disposal. As every coach, sometimes feel I feel players can be injured or something. So I take those decision as I feel and I stand by them.”
Listening to such an excuse, it tells you clearly this man has absolutely nothing to offer the team. When it was all clear that many players were tired and were not productive, the coach held on to them as though he was leading by a five-goal margin.
The earlier the team returns to the country, the better. Both the Coach and the playing body are finished.
