‘Current squad can’t be compared to Black Stars of 2010,’ says Milovan Rajevac ahead of Comoros game


The Black Stars boss has reiterated that the current crop of players can’t be compared to the side he first led to make the country proud

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has suggested that the current crop of players lack quality as compared to the team he once coached for 2010 Africa Cup of Nations and 2010 Fifa World Cup held in South Africa.

The 68-year-old Serbian tactician has come under intense pressure following the Black Stars poor start to the Afcon ongoing in Cameroon.

Ghana, after two games are yet to pick a win and currently sit third of Group C log. The four-time champions need a win at all cost against Comoros in the final Group game on Tuesday in order to stand a chance of making it to the next stage.

Although, a section of Ghanaians have raised concerns about his inability to communicate with the players in English Language and rather pass on information through his interpreter, Milovan says that has never been a problem

“Communication is not a problem and they understand me very well,” Milovan said at the pre-match conference ahead of Tuesday’s game.

“The problem is just that we didn’t have enough time to prepare for the Africa Cup of Nations. We don’t have the same team like 2010. Not enough time for preparations,” he added.

Milovan further stressed that Ghana lacks a potent striker like former captain Asamoah Gyan who can change the outcome of a game with even a half chance.

“We don’t have a player like Asamoah Gyan. We don’t have that type of a player to change things for the team with small chance,” he said.

 Ghana left Yaounde on Sunday to Garoua with a flight to pitch camp there for the make or break encounter on Tuesday evening
