Eymael lands in more hot water

Premiership

Tanzania Football Federation president Wallace Kaira has welcomed SAFA's decision to seek a South African work ban for Belgian coach Luc Eymael.

SAFA also announced they will report the Belgian coach to CAF and FIFA following his statements made in the media, which have been viewed as having racist undertones.

Eymael was fired as coach of Young Africans in Tanzania following his utterances in the media where he compared the club's baying fans to 'monkeys and dogs'.

"We would like to thank the football association in South Africa for the support," Kaira tells KickOff.com from Tanzania.

"Such an insult to Yanga supporters is an insult to all Africans. This is not acceptable and as Africans we agree that we cannot be treated like this.

"The issue of racism is not allowed in football and even the world outside football. This is not the first time the coach makes abusive statements and this time he has exceeded the limit.

"We have sent this issue to the DC commitee to deal with it and then we will take it to FIFA."

Eymael has coached a number of teams in South Africa including Polokwane City, Black Leopards nd Free State Stars, with whom he won the Nedbank Cup.
