Ghana coach: I will not resign

African Football

Ghana head coach Milovan Rajevac has insisted he will not resign despite the Black Stars being knocked out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations without a single win. 

The Black Stars were dumped out of the competition after suffering a 3-2 defeat to Comoros on Tuesday night, a result that saw them finish fourth in Group C. 

According to Ghana-based journalist Saddick Adams, this is the first time the West African nation had ever exited the tournament without a single victory.

Despite Rajevac only joining the team four months ago, reports suggest that the Ghana Football Association are not happy with the Serbian's performance at the prestigious tournament. 

However, the 68-year-old has insisted he will not be leaving the post of his own accord.
