Milovan Rajevac has signed a one-year deal for his second spell as Black Stars coach. 

Milovan Rajevac has rejected claims that he was desperate to return as Ghana coach. 

The Serbian tactician's appointment was confirmed and unveiled on Friday at the Ghana Football Association Secretariat in Accra. 

“I was not desperate for the Ghana job," Rajevac said at a press conference. 

"Ghana is my second home and I was happy to get the opportunity to work in Ghana,” the Serbian coach concluded.

Rajevac parted ways with Ghana in 2010 after making the Black Stars the best side on the continent. 

Rajevac's Black Stars reached the quarter-final of the 2010 World Cup and also finished as runners up at the Afcon in Angola. 

His departure shocked many because the GFA were willing to offer him an improved contract. He instead preferred a move to the gulf. 

Since leaving Ghana, his coaching career has taken a nosedive. He last managed any team in 2019 after he was sacked by Thailand.
