Newly appointed Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac will earn $30,000 as monthly salary after signing a one-and-a-half-year deal with the Ghana Football Association.
The tenure of agreement is for a year, however, if is able to qualify for the World Cup tournament in Qatar, the contract will be extended to 2023.
The Serbian coach replaces coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor who was sacked by the FA over an uninspiring performance in the World Cup qualifiers.
The former Algerian coach will be assisted by Ghanaian duo of Otto Addo and Maxwell Konadu.
He will also be tasked to secure a 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification in Qatar after the team’s poor start to the campaign in which they narrowly beat Ethiopia 1-0 in Accra and lost by the same margin against South Africa.
Rajevac,67, is making a return to coach the senior national team after his first spell saw him leading the Black Stars to the 2010 African Cup of Nations in Angola and FIFA World Cup in South Africa.
He also guided the home-based black Stars to the maiden African Nations championship in Cote d’Ivoire in 2009.
The experienced trainer left his first job with Ghana in 2010 to join Saudi Arabia side Al-Ahli Jeddah before subsequently coaching Qatar, Rudar Velenje, Algeria and Thailand
