Polokwane seek R1.5m from Eymael


Though Eymael has already signed a contract as new coach at Bloemfontein Celtic, he has not been able to start his official duties after City filed a complaint with the PSL, barring him from going ahead with his new job.

That case is set to be heard in March.

Besides the contract situation, City and Eymael have outstanding issues arising from money that the club loaned to the coach, which has given the club ammunition to demand compensation of R1,5 million.

Eymael put in his resignation letter to the club following running differences with the hierarchy.

Despite the issuing of his work permit, Eymael could only watch Celtic from the stands against Cape Town City after Polokwane took their case to the PSL blocking him with starting his new job.

He was also sat in the stands in the Nedbank Cup victory over Buya Msuthu while awaiting the processing of his papers.

Eymael is currently back home in Belgium seeing to matters related to his UEFA Pro Licence.

In the meantime, Celtic have been forced to play the waiting game with Lehlohonolo Seema continuing in charge in the interim.
