AFCON 2021: Team Ghana beef up technical team with four brains

Mike Stankovic and Awal Kamin Salifu

The Ghana Football Association has made four additions to the Technical team of the Black Stars as requested by head coach, Milovan Rajevac to strengthen the Technical team ahead of the Africa’s flagship tournament which kicks off on Sunday, January 9, 2022 in Cameroon.

The new additions include Mike Stankovic, an experienced Serbian/American football coach, Awal Salifu, a performance analyst of International repute and two scouts whose names are withheld by the GFA.

Mike Stankovic is a former Yugoslavia defender who played in the Major League Soccer (MLS) for a period of 18 years before taking up coaching in 1991.

The 65-year old served as an assistant to Milovan Rajevac during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa where Ghana exited at the quarter final stage after losing to Uruguay on penalties. Mike Stankovich later joined Milovan Rajevac to manage the Qatar national football team in 2011.

Awal Kamin Salifu joins the team as a performance analyst. He formerly worked with Right to Dream Academy in Ghana and Nordsjaelland FC in Denmark as Performance analyst. He joins the Black Stars with vast  experience in player performance analysis and monitoring.

The new technical team members have already started working with the team in Doha and are expected to bring their rich vein of experience to bear during the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

The Black Stars play the current African Champions Algeria in an International friendly today, January 5, 2022  in Qatar where they have been camping for weeks.

The Black Stars are housed in Group C with Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.
