Former Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has insisted that he has not been reached to play an advisory role for the Black Stars at the World Cup.
The Serbian is reported to be in talks with coach Kwesi Appiah to join his technical bench at Brazil 2014. However, the 60-year-old said he only went as a mere spectator to watch the Montenegro – Ghana friendly last week and nothing should be read into it.
“You know Montenegro is very close to Serbia, so we just come around there when we know that Ghana will play there in the friendly match,” Rajevac told Angel FM.
“I’m very close to the coach and many of these players and the GFA, everybody was nice during my stay in Ghana, so I need to get to their place and talk and keep our relationship and see the coach's training and tactics, and whatever I can see and help through my capacity.”
He added: “At no point did I speak to the coach about any role or scout, something; I just went to see the team and not any other thing. We still have a nice relationship with people in Ghana, journalists, players, the people and everyone one, but we did not talk about my job or Ghana World Cup role, no.”
Rajevac, however, opined that he will not reject an offer from the 2010 World Cup quarter-finalists to boost their chances at the Mundial this summer.
“Possibility, it can only be possible if and only if Kwesi told me yes I need you to help me this or that, but he never told me about help or professional work,” he stressed.
