BLACK Stars coach Milovan Rajevac has been given a seven-day deadline to sign a new contract offered to him by the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
The 56-year-old has been offered a new four-year deal but has not signed due to contractual issues with his manager.
The Chairman of the GFA Kwesi Nyantakyi says Rajevac has to make up his mind soon.
“In the event that he does not resolve those issues, we have to look elsewhere,” Nyantakyi told BBC Sport.
Rajevac took a relatively young Black Stars team to the final of the Africa Cup of Nations in Angola in February and to the quarter finals of the World Cup a few months later in South Africa, triggering calls from fans and players alike that his contract be extended.
Nyantakyi said he hopes the issue will be resolved as soon as possible. “We pray and look forward to a resolution of whatever difficulties he is facing back home.
The Chairman of the GFA revealed that Rajevac wanted to remain in Ghana despite receiving more lucrative offers.
“He has not hidden his desire to work in Ghana even though he’s received better offers from [richer] clubs and national sides.
