Ghana Football Association (GFA) is set to hold a meeting on Monday in order to determine the future of Black Stars coach Goran Stevanovic after the team failed to win the 2012 Nations Cup.

The 45-year old tactician had promised to resign from his post if Ghana did not reach the finals.

However, according to, the GFA president Kwesi Nyantekyie has expressed an interest in keeping the Serbian coach especially with another Nations Cup next year and the World Cup qualifiers starting in June.

However the decision to retain Stevanovic is yet to be determined.  The Serbian coach is due to meet the GFA board on Tuesday with the results being announced to the media on Wednesday.

Ghana could be forced to pay Stevanovic the remaining fees of his contract if they do choose to fire him as he signed a one year contract at €30,000 a month.

The Black Stars’ dream of winning the CAN 2012 title was thwarted by the continental competition’s winners Zambia. Ghana finished 4thin the tournament after losing 2-0 to Mali.
