The Ghana Football Association will officially introduce new national coach Milovan Rajevac at a media conference in Accra on Monday.

Milovan Rajevac would be unveiled by the FA at its headquarters in Accra at 2:00PM local time (14:00GMT).

Former FK Borac, FC Vojvodina coach Rajevac has signed a 2-year contract that will run until the 2010 World Cup with the Ghana Football Association, making him the new national manager of Africa’s second-best team, the Black Stars.

“We settled on him because of his track record”, the Ghana Football Association President, Kwesi Nyantakyi said.

“He has coached consistently since the ’80s and we find him motivated for success. He may have no previous experience at national team level but he wants to achieve for himself and that for us was very important.”

The 54-year-old Serbian takes over from Claude Le Roy who left in May after helping Ghana to win bronze at the 2008 African Nations Cup.

Milovan Rajevac’s first official game for Ghana comes on Wednesday in an international friendly against Tanzania in Arusha.
