DOHA - Milovan Rajevac has been named as
the new national coach of Qatar, the Serb replacing Frenchman
Bruno Metsu, who was sacked following the country's
quarter-final exit at the Asian Cup in Doha in January.
"We wanted to have a good coach to replace (Bruno) Metsu and
we know that (Milovan) Rajevac is a great coach," Qatar Football
Association (QFA) president Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa bin Ahmed
Al Thani told reporters on Sunday.
"He has the previous experience of working in Qatar as his
compatriot Bora Milutinovic's assistant at the Al Sadd Club
(2004-05) and this should help him a lot," the QFA chief added
after revealing Rajevac's contract will run until 2014.
Rajevac guided Ghana to the quarter-finals of the 2010 World
Cup in South Africa, where they lost to Uruguay on penalties,
and the 56-year-old also took the Black Stars to the final of
last year's African Cup of Nations, where they lost to Egypt.
The Serb, who quit the Ghana job and joined Saudi Arabian
club Al Ahli after the World Cup, has also had coaching stints
at clubs in Sweden, Germany and China.
