The Ghana Football Association has confirmed that Milovan Rajevac has quit as coach of the Black Stars.
Following a meeting of the GFA, spokesman Randy Abbey trevealed that the Serbian coach had formally handed in his resignation, ending a two-year spell where he took Ghana to the last eight of the World Cup in South Africa.
“He (Rajevac) has informed the Ghana Football Association that he wants to move on with new challenges,” Abbey said. “No replacement has been named because the GFA has not taken any decision on that issue yet.”
It had already been widely reported that Rajevac had left his job with Ghana to take up an offer with Saudi club Al Ahly Jeddah.
The GFA had given the 56-year-old Rajevac a seven-day ultimatum, which expired Sunday, to sign a new four-year-deal.
Rajevac also guided a young team to the final of the Cup of Nations in Angola earlier this year, where it eventually lost 1-0 to Egypt in the final.
At the World Cup finals, Ghana missed a late penalty in their quarter-final tie against Uruguay that would have seen them become the first African team to make the semi-finals, and went on to lose in a penalty shootout.
