A return to the Absa Premiership could be on the cards for a Belgian coach who previously did well in South Africa and won a trophy in Mzansi’s top flight.
After parting ways with Black Leopards in December, Belgian coach Luc Eymael went on to join Young Africans SC in Tanzania in January.
Yanga, as the Tanzanian club is fondly known, had been 5th on the log when the former Free State Stars Nedbank Cup-winning coach took over the reins.
Under Eymael, the team has moved to 3rd on the standings, and doing well despite the Belgian mentor’s complaints about the officiating.
“I have won five games in a row and yesterday (Tuesday) we drew (1-1 with Mbeya City FC). So, it is 16 points out of 18 and normally it should have been 18 on 18,” Eymael told the Siya crew, before adding, “Officiating in South Africa is 10 times better.”
Indications from sources close to the mentor are that he would be keen on a return to Mzansi as he believes that he has unfinished business in the Absa Premiership.
Eymael had been previously linked with AmaZulu, though it is believed that the Durban-based club has no immediate intentions regarding making technical team changes at this stage.
