Eymael planning return to Mzansi


Troubled coach Luc Eymael is planning a trip to South Africa immediately after the country opens its borders.

This in spite of SAFA vowing to oppose any job opportunity the Belgian gets in the country after he was sacked citing racial remarks at Tanzanian club Young Africans SC.

"I'm still following SA soccer on my TV," Eymael tells KickOff.com from his home in Belgium.

"I was watching the Nedbank Cup then Sundowns and Pirates. Wait and see, I still have a work permit... but the problems are the flights.

"And Europe, you are also allowed into SA without a Visa. Did I receive something from SAFA? How can you judge me via social media?

"Since the beginning I said these are not my words. You think that it was my words and that was not... I cannot speak too much. Wait and see. Like I said, now there are no flights."

Asked if he was coming to the country for work, he replied: "I had contact but currently it is not possible, unfortunately."
