Former Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac will welcome an opportunity to lead the national team for a second time.

The 66-year-old made history with the Black Stars in 2010 as he led the team to the quarter-finals of the World Cup in South Africa.

Earlier that year, he guided Ghana to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Angola, where they lost to Egypt.

“Of course, I will be interested [if offered the opportunity to coach Ghana again],” Rajevac told Kumasi FM.

“It will be very difficult to reject it because of my feelings for Ghanaians.”

“Of course, Ghana is my second country, and the success I achieved there and how I felt cannot be compared to anything in this world. I still have many friends and are in touch with a lot of them.”

“Everyone at the Ghana Football Association (GFA), the media, and my technical team contributed to my success, it was a collective success.”

“I will visit Ghana in the future, at least as a tourist [and possibly] to talk about professional engagement,” he said.

Rajevac coached Ghana between 2008 and 2010.

Rajevac left his post as Black Stars coach two months after the 2010 World Cup, taking up a job with Saudi side Al-Ahli.

He has since gone on to coach the Qatari national team, Slovenian side Rudar Velenje as well as the national teams of Algeria and Thailand.
