Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has expressed mixed emotions after his side beat his compatriots Serbia in their opening World Cup game, but he stressed he had no option were he to keep his job.
The Black Stars – who were the first African country to qualify for the 2010 World Cup – were the first African side to bag three points thanks to their 1-0 win on Sunday which sent the entire continent into a frenzy.
The 55-year-old Serbian described the victory as the greatest ever in his career.
“This is the greatest win of my career but I also feel sorry for Serbia,” Rajevac told the Ghanaian FA website.
“I saw the anguish on the players’ faces after the final whistle.
“I had a job to do and I did it professionally but I hope my countrymen win their next two games against Germany and Australia, I wish them the best of luck.”
Ghana play Australia next in Rustenburg on June 19.
