Official: Ghana Sack Coach

Following their worst-ever performance at an Africa Cup Of Nations tournament, the Ghana Football Association has decided to part ways with the coach.

Serbian tactician Milovan Rajevac and the Black Stars exited AFCON 2021 at the group stage after failing to register a single win.

"The Executive Council of the Ghana Football Association has decided to part ways with Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac," a statement on the GFA's official website read.

"This follows the receipt of the Technical Report from the coach, the medical report and the report from the Management Committee following Ghana's early exit from the Africa Cup of Nations Cameroon 2021 tournament.

"The Executive Council after considering the three reports and engagements with key stakeholders has decided to end its relationship with coach Milovan Rajevac and also decided that the Black Stars Management Committee be reconstituted."

Rajevac's second stint as Ghana head coach pales in comparison to his first, with the coach previously being in charge of the Black Stars from 2008 to 2010.

During that time, he led them to the final of the 2009 African Nations Championship, the final of AFCON in 2010, and the quarter-finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

"The GFA will soon announce the reconstituted Technical Team and Management Committee after due engagement with all relevant stakeholders. Ghana's next assignment is a FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 playoff against Nigeria in March 2022," the GFA statement on Wednesday concluded.

Ghana left the tournament in Cameroon having drawn with Gabon and suffering defeat to Morocco and AFCON debutants Comoros.

Here are all of the PSL players who had initially been selected to take part in this year's AFCON:
