Yeboah Slams GFA Over New Coach 8/16/2008

... Appiah backs new coach Rajevac
Former Ghana international,Tony Yeboah, has criticized the Ghana Football Association over the choice of unknown Serbian, Milovan Rajevac, as new Black Stars coach.

The one-time prolific goalscorer has cast doubts over Rajevac''s credentials and believes the FA has erred in his appointment.

"If they were going to appoint somebody like this, then I think Attuquayfio is equally qualified to lead the Black Stars," Yeboah told Ghanasoccernet.com

"They said no local coach had the qualifications to handle the team but I think they are wrong.They can do it." he added

"For me I don''t think this Serbian can do the job."Yeboah scored 26 goals in 59 appearances for the national team before retiring form international duty in 1999.

He was also twice joint topscorer in the German Bundesliga in 1993 and 1994 with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Rajevac''s appointment has been greeted with mixed reactions after a three-month search as a replacement for Claude Le Roy,who terminated his contract with the GFA.
Appiah backs new coach Rajevac
By Ibrahim Sannie
Ghana captain Stephen Appiah has given his full backing to new coach Milovan Rajevac despite criticism from certain quarters.

The 52-year-old Serbian was named as the coach of the Black Stars on Tuesday amid murmurs over his experience in Africa.

But the former Juventus midfielder says the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has picked the right man for the job.

"It is unfair to criticise the GFA for coach Rajevac''s appointment when his records show that he has achieved great things in his career," Appiah told BBC Sport.

"He has coached consistently over the past decade, has turned small clubs into big sides and with the necessary support from all of us he will take us places.

"Serbia is a similar terrain to Africa so the unwarranted criticism can only succeed in breaking our front and kill the vision of building a formidable team.

"It is imperative that we show him solidarity so that we succeed in all our missions in his reign as the coach of the Black Stars.

"The team is in good spirit and we want to qualify for the 2010 World Cup and possibly win the 2010 Nations Cup under the new coach."

Rajevac quit Serbian club FK Borak Cacak on Thursday immediately after leading them to a 1-0 win over Lokomotiv Sofia of Bulgaria in a Uefa Cup qualifier.

He takes over from Frenchman Claude Le Roy, who resigned in May, three months after leading Ghana to a third place finish at the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Serbian''s first assignment with the Black Stars will be a friendly against Tanzania in Arusha 20 August.

Rajevac first competitive game is a 2010 World Cup qualifier away to Libya on 5 September.
