Milovan Rajevac has quit as coach of World Cup quarter-finalists Ghana after failing to agree a new contract and taken charge of Saudi Arabian club Al Ahly Jeddah instead.

The 56-year-old Serb signed an 18-month deal with Al Ahly, the Ghana Football Association said in a brief statement on Tuesday.

The quietly-spoken Rajevac emerged from coaching anonymity to make a big impact during his two years in charge of the Black Stars.

Ghana qualified in style for the World Cup finals in South Africa and also reached the final of the African Nations Cup in Angola at the start of the year.

The team’s charge to the last eight of the World Cup was all the more impressive as they were without midfield talisman, Chelsea’s Michael Essien, through injury.
