Reports have it that the Federation of Senegalese Football (FSF) is considering the candidature of former Ghana coach, Milovan Rajevac.
The Serbian had taken charge of the Black Stars in 2008 and led them to the 2010 AFCON final and to a quarterfinal at the 2010 World Cup. Rajevac had left the Ghana team due to the Federation’s failure to offer him an improved contract, which led him to the Middle East with Al-Ahli (2010-2011) and the Qatar national team (2011). Disappointing results saw him sacked however and leaving him now jobless. The Serbian had been shortlisted for the then vacant Egyptian national team job in 2011, but was ultimately overlooked in favor of Bob Bradley who was appointed instead.
The main obstacle the FSF might have in appointing the Serbian might be his wage demands, which are reported to be around €1.7m per annum (as much as he had back at Al-Ahli). Although, more reports (from local newspaper "Stades") have it that the sports minister, Abdoulaye Makhtar Diop, is ready to throw in as much as €2m/year as the budget for the new coach. Should these reports be true, then the financial question would in effect no longer be of actuality. The only remaining obstacles would rest with the all-important issues of the language barrier and Rajevac’s ability to deliver on the FSF’s expectations/objectives of a semifinal appearance* at the next AFCON.
* The aforementioned objectives are unconfirmed by the FSF, simply speculations and rumors I am relaying from whispers I have heard
