Contacted for comment, the former Polokwane City and Free State Stars coach told the Siya crew that he was still to hear from the club about his sacking. 

“I cannot comment for now because until now I haven’t received anything from the club. But I apologised already on my Facebook and on Instagram. But I know why I did that, it was a journalist who was harassing me on Wednesday after the game and I didn’t want to comment. He was insisting and made me nervous and I told him that he was a fan of Simba. I sent him a voice note and it only came out yesterday (Sunday). Why yesterday and not on Wednesday or Thursday? But it’s okay,” said Eymael.
