Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac will arrive in the country next week to take over the Black Stars job.

It is understood that Rajevac Milovan will earn an amount of $45,000 per month.

He resigned from the Black Stars job after the 2010 World Cup to sign for Saudi side Al Ahly Jeddah.

The three-member committee led by Ghana FA Vice president Mark Addo selected the former Black Stars coach from the list of applicants interested in the job.
Milovan has a reach history with the four-time AFCON Champions.

He guided the Black Stars to the 2010 AFCON final where the team lost to Egypt and reached the quarter-finals in the 2010 World Cup with the Black Stars and promoted a lot of youth players from the U-20 World Cup-winning squad to the national team.
