Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael cools Kaizer Chiefs talk

Posted: 11 March 2018 Time: 19:00

Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael is tired of rumours linking him with the likes of Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United.

The Belgian, who penned a two-year deal with Ea Lla Koto in August, has bolstered his profile by transforming the club from regular relegation battlers to title contenders this season.

And while Eymael has a buyout clause in his contract and previously acknowledged interest from abroad in his services, he has downplayed talk he is on Chiefs' and SuperSport's radars.

"Every day I get calls from journalists asking me about the same question... blah blah blah and all these rumours," says the former Polokwane City coach.

"I still have a contract with Free State Stars. I have a buyout clause. I don't know anything about these rumours about Chiefs and SuperSport. If there is interest, [Stars boss] Rantsi [Mokoena] will be the first person to know. I will know. You know me, I am an honest person, I will tell you."

SuperSport parted ways with coach Eric Tinkler last weekend, while Steve Komphela's three-year contract with Chiefs expires at the end of the campaign.
