2021 Africa Cup of Nations: Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac blames poor preparations for late goals conceded

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac says his team’s poor preparations ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations is the reason for the late goals his side has conceded. 

The Black Stars have conceded all two goals at the AFCON from the 80th minute, after suffering an 83 minute defeat to Morocco and watching Jim Allevinah score in the 88th minute to level for Gabon last Friday.

Ahead of the final group game against Comoros, the Serbian trainer is hoping to avoid such setbacks.

“The biggest obstacle was, we didn’t have preparations as planned and we didn’t have much time. Of course it’s not an excuse, it’s a simple fact and we are trying to improve every department of the team,” he said.

“About the goal scoring, we are trying to make things count by scoring more goals, it’s something that we are thinking about and trying to solve every day,” he added.

Meanwhile, Milovan Rajevac admits his team lacks a striker like Asamoah Gyan, who helped him with goals in his first spell in charge.

“It’s not easy to find another Asamoah Gyan, he was able to score from any position at any time so definitely this team is growing and we are going to sort it out so expect the team to be more efficient in the attack and be more concentrated in the last stage of the match,” he concluded.
