Official: Algeria appoint Milovan Rajevac as national team manager
The Algerian Football Federation have announced the appointment of Serbian Milovan Rajevac as national team manager.
The appointment of Rajevac was announced today on the FAF’s official website. The Algerian Football Federation’s president Mohamed Raouraoua has reportedly negotiated the details of the deal earlier this week, while Rajevac is expected to be in Algeria mid-July and hold a press conference.
Rajevac comes to lead Les Fennecs replacing interim manager Nabil Neghiz who held the job after Christian Gourcuff stepped down from his position as manager.
He also led the Black Stars to the quarter finals of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa after losing out to penalties against Uruguay and won the 2009 U20 World Cup in Egypt after Ghana beat Brazil in the final.
Rajevac has since had unsuccessful spells with Al Ahli in Saudi Arabia and the Qatar national team. He previously led Borac Čačak and Vojvodina in Serbia.
He is expected to lead Algeria in the 2017 African Cup of Nations in Gabon as well as the qualifying rounds for the 2018 World Cup in Russia where Algeria are in group B along Zambia, Cameroon and Nigeria.
It’s worth noting that Rajevac was previously linked with the Egypt manager post following the sacking of Shawky Gharib.
