Milovan Rajevac (; born 2 January 1954) is a Serbian football coach and former professional player.

Playing career

Born in Čajetina,[1] Rajevac played as a defender for Borac Čačak, Red Star Belgrade, Vojvodina, Lunds BK, and the New York Arrows (as "Mike Rejevac"[2][3]) and Sloboda Užice.

Coaching career

Rajevac coached a number of club sides in his native Serbia, including Sloboda Užice, Red Star Belgrade, Vojvodina and Borac Čačak.

Ghana national team

He became Ghana manager in August 2008.[4][5] During the 2010 African Cup of Nations, he led Ghana to the finals, there they were defeated by Egypt 1–0. He then coached Ghana all the way to the quarterfinals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, eventually losing to Uruguay 4–2 in a penalty shootout.

Rajevac quit Ghana on 8 September 2010, and took up a position with Saudi Arabian team Al-Ahli a day later.[6]

Qatar national team

He left the Saudi club in February 2011 to take up the role as national team coach for Qatar.[7] He was relieved of duties on August 7, 2011 after the team's disappointing losses to India (1–2) in a friendly at home and away to Vietnam (1–2) in the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification match.[8]

In September 2011, Rajevac was linked with the Egyptian national team.[9] In the four-candidate shortlist alongside compatriot Zoran Filipović, Colombian Francisco Maturana, and American Bob Bradley, Rajevac made the final two with Bradley, but the job eventually went to Bradley.
