The Serbian coach was full of praise to his players and leaders of the Black Stars after picking maximum points against the Warriors in the World Cup qualifiers

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has heaped praise on his players following the Back Stars 1-0 victory over Zimbabwe in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

The 65-year-old replaced C.K Akonnor last month and has breathed life back into the country’s ambitions to qualify to the World Cup.

The Black Stars completed a double over Zimbabwe after defeating them 3-1 last weekend and 1-0 on Tuesday thanks to Thomas Partey’s wonderful free-kick.

“As you all know, this was my first camp after I came back and I have to say that I am really really grateful to everybody; my players, the medical department, the technical team and GFA. We all did this together,” Rajevac said.

“I felt immense support from everybody these days so really feel happy because we managed to accomplish our mission to win these two matches and to get six points so that we can still be in contention for the World Cup.

“This match was hard as the previous one. I want to congratulate my players for the performance and also the Zimbabwean team and coach for excellent fighting and desire.”

Ghana currently sit second in the Group G log with nine points and will play Ethiopia next month in Addis Ababa before hey host South Africa in the last game of the qualifiers at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

Milovan will earn $300,000 if he is able to guide the Black Stars to qualify to the World Cup holding in Qatar next year.
