Milovan Rajevac

Ex Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has held talks with officials of the Egyptian FA over becoming the new coach of Pharaoh, according to Ghanasoccernet.com.

The Serbian was spotted at the Air Defence Stadium to see the Black Stars seal a place at the next year?s World Cup in Brazil despite a 2-1 loss to Egypt on Tuesday.

The 59-year-old?s presence immediately sparked reports he was set to make a return to the Ghana camp in an unknown capacity.

Initial investigations however revealed that Rajevac was in Cairo to hold talks towards replacing Bob Bradley as coach of the Pharaohs.

The American trainer?s contract is up by the end of the month and the Egyptian FA have confirmed they will not be renewing his contract following his failure to qualify the team to the World Cup.

Egyptian FA boss Gamal Allam had earlier revealed the association will only be looking to appoint a local coach to take over when Bradley leaves.

It has however emerged that the Egyptian FA are looking at other possibilities including Rajevac who enjoyed tremendous success during his two year reign with the Black Stars.

The Serb?s exorbitant financial demands however threatens to scupper his move to Egypt.

The Egyptian FA held talks with the Serb hours after the win over Ghana on Tuesday where Rajevac laid down his demands.

These proposals will be discussed by the executives of the EFA in a subsequent meeting.

Rajevac remains very popular in Ghana for taking the Black Stars to the grand finale of the 2010 Nations Cup in Angola where Ghana ironically lost to Egypt.

He again led the side to within a penalty miss of making a historic semi final berth at the World Cup months later in South Africa.
