Renowned Ghanaian sports historian, Bright Yeboah Taylor, has set the records straight on the number of games Milovan Rajevac played in his first stint with the Black Stars.

It was widely reported after the re-appointment of Milovan Rajevac to stir the affairs of the Black Stars that the Serbian supervised 28 games from 2008-2010 as Black Stars coach.

But according to the Kumasi-based Pure FM journalist, the historical records available to him indicate that Milovan supervised 33 games as a Ghana coach.

Bright Yeboah Taylor made this known when GhanaWeb reached out to him for the historical records of the newly appointed Black Stars coach.

“Coach Milo played thirty-three games, won fourteen, lost twelve and seven of the games. His team scored forty goals and conceded thirty-two goals in the process. Nineteen of the games were competitive games,” he said.
