Update: Stars Coach Announcement Imminent?
Free State Stars To Make Technical Team Changes
Free State Stars are reshuffling their bench following Sammy Troughton’s exit and an announcement on his replacement is expected imminently.
Ea Lla Koto were not happy with the team’s 1-0 in their opening game of the season, against AmaZulu, and following the 2-2 against Bidvest Wits in their second league outing of the campaign last night, the club decided to part ways with the Irishman.
The results have left Stars in 13th position on the ABSA Premiership. Former Polokwane City head coach, Luc Eymael, is expected to take over at the helm.
“Luc Eymael is set to take over from Sammy Troughton as the coach of Free State Stars. He has been spotted in Bethlehem. He arrived in South Africa this week and has now been spotted in Bethlehem. He is expected to become the new coach for Stars,” said the source.
Stars’ next outing will be played against Mamelodi Sundowns at Goble Park on September 12. This will allow the new mentor the time to restructure the side during the upcoming FIFA break.
