Out-doored Black Stars head coach, Goran Stevanovic feels lucky to have been given the Ghana job and says winning trophies with the National “Team A” remains a dream he will drive to the end.

The 44-year old coach, who becomes the third Serbian to manage Ghana in six years, says “many coaches will like to be in my position because this is a good team.”

“I know it’s been over 20 years since Ghana won a trophy and the time to be first again is now. I’m here to be a champion and am sure all of us want to be champions again. The time to win trophies again is now.

“I’m here to make the Black Stars shine even brighter. I know it will be a difficult task because the players have achieved so much already but ultimately everyone knows that winning the trophies and being a champion is what we all fight for.”

Coach Stevanovic said his focus will be to motivate the players to see the need to fight to be first in every game, something he cited as a great challenge.

“I will have to motivate the players to deliver and that is a very great challenge because these players have achieved so much already.  I know it will be tough but I can cope because I have experience.”

Stevanovic who is on a two-year renewable contract at the instance of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) coached Partizan Belgrade to the Serbian League title last season.

The 44-year old trainer was one of five coaches short-listed to replace Milovan Rajevac which included former France World Cup winner Marcel Desailly, Aduana Stars coach, Herbert Addo and former Portugal manager Humberto Coelho.
