Ghana’s new coach Milovan Rajevac set to receive massive R650,000 salary

By on September 21, 2021 0

Ghana, opponents of Bafana Bafana for the World Cup qualifiers, are expected to hire a new coach, Milovan Rajevac, with a whopping salary of over half a million Rand per month.

Rajevac is already back in Ghana and will take over with the main goal of qualifying for next year’s World Cup finals in Qatar from a group consisting of Bafana Bafana, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe who have also changed coaches in recent days.

Returning to the role of The Black Stars, the Serbian will earn 45,000 USD (around R 665,000) each month, according to reports from Ghana.

The two-year contract for Rajevac is performance-based.

His appointment was approved by the Sports Ministry following meetings with the Ghanaian federation.

Rajevac’s predecessor Charles Kwablah Akonnor earned $ 25,000 (around R370,000) in the same job for which Avram Grant was paid double when he was in charge between 2015-17.

The incomes of local coaches are always eclipsed by those of expatriate coaches on the continent, which has always created debates and tensions over issues of respect and appreciation.

The Serbian veteran will get additional perks in his package and his immediate task will be two games against the Warriors next month.

The 67-year-old was the coach at Ghana’s famous World Cup in the 2010 World Cup where they reached the last eight.

Bafana coach Hugo Broos is one of the continent’s best earners, with Egyptian Carlos Queiroz at the top of the list.

Rajevac is miles ahead of what Croatian coach Zdravko Logarusic earned as coach of Zimbabwe where he made $ 7,800 (around R115,000) per month.

However, after his sacking, Rajevac walked away with more than 200,000 USD (around 3 million Rand) despite winning only one match in 14.
