The manager of the senior national soccer team the Black Stars of Ghana, Milovan Rajevac has revealed his style and philosophy as a coach.
Decision making in every team in terms of player selection and tactics are always made by a coach of the team but there’s been a different options from the fans but being a professional coach you need to sometimes adopt some of the opinions from the fans in addition to what you figure out and good to prove your critics wrong.
Milovan is one of the experience coaches who has his handwriting in the notebook of African football.
According to the veteran manager he is type of a coach who is very diplomatic and open to hearing people’s opinion.
On his style and philosophy as a coach he noticed, “I am a very democratic person. I am open to hearing people’s opinion because it is important but in the end, I am the one who is making the decision because it is my job at stake and I am responsible after all.
“First of all, I am professional and I expect professional approach from everybody. Nobody can mean better to the players than I can mean good for them so I expect professional approach towards me and I am trying to be professional towards everyone around. This is what I had in Ghana but unfortunately in other places, this wasn’t the case so that’s why some jobs ended earlier than it is supposed to be because I didn’t have that kind of approach. That is why coming here, I knew what to expect and this is the environment that I really enjoy and the people I work with so I am quite positive in terms of making good things.
“I am not an autocratic person, I am open to opinions. I think people who cannot work with me cannot work with many other people. I believe I am good for team work but in the end, I make the tough decisions and suffer the consequences of things go wrong.” He stated.
Milovan is now heading the Black Stars of Ghana for second time after sacking CK Akonnor.
