Serbian manager Milovan Rajevac has quit as the coach ofGhana after two years with the Black Stars.

Ghanasoccernet can exclusively report that Rajevac has signed acontract with wealthy Saudi side Al Ahly Jeddah worth US$4.5m.

The 54-year-old exit’s exit was confirmed by Saudi newspaper Economic who reported on Thursday that the Serbian had arrived in the country.

The Ghana FA is yet to be officially informed of the decision even though his agent, who has been angered by Rajevac’s decision to snub the Black Stars, has reported the issue to the Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi.

Club president Prince Khalid bin Fahd has confirmed that he signed a one-yearcontract despite a four year contract offer from Ghana.

This means the Black Stars are looking for a new coach ahead of next month’s clash with Sudan in Accra.

Rajevac arrived in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday night in the company of a British agent Alexander Wallis.

He jumped ship after opting to sign for Saudi Arabian side Al Ahly without the blessing of his agent Goran Milovanovic which has sparked a tug-of-war.

His agent wanted him to sign the four-year contract proposed by the Ghana Football Association but Rajevac wanted to go for the money by signing for Al Ahly.

He is expected to be unveiled this week by Al Ahly.

His first game in charge of the side will be on 16 September when Al Ahly clash with their city rivals Al Ittihad Jeddah.

The coach’s contract expired on 17 August and the Serbian has continued to work without the new deal being signed.

Rajevac took a relatively young Black Stars team to the final of the Africa Cup ofNations in Angola in February.

He also led the team to the quarter finals of the World Cup a few months later in South Africa, triggering calls from fans and players alike that his contract be extended.
