Belgian coach Luc Eymael is excited about the imminent restart of the league season in Tanzania amid some concerns.
Like most football leagues and other sporting codes around the world, the Tanzania Premier League – where the former Polokwane City, Free State Stars and Black Leopards coach is in charge of Young Africans – has been suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
However, it has been announced this past week in Tanzania that plans are in place for the league to resume on June 01 in attempt to finish the season.
While Eymael is pleased that the league is set to finally resume, the tactician is concerned that there have been no flights for him to travel from Belgium.
“The first flight from Europe when I checked it is on the 30th of May, but that flight will only arrive in Tanzania two days after, because it will take 36 hours. I don’t want to take 36 hours traveling,” Eymael told the Siya crew.
“Another flight that will be leaving from Brussels will be arriving in Tanzania on the first of June. Another one will be arriving in Tanzania on the second of June. I asked them (Young Africans) to book me a flight that will arrive there on the first of June. That will be the first time that there will be a flight arriving in Dar es Salaam. Maybe, some companies will open more flights to operate from next week, I don’t know. But until now there are no flights to Dar es Salaam,” the coach added.
Since the suspension of the league, the 60-year-old mentor has been home in Belgium, where he also recently got married last week.
“Official wedding day with my the fantastic witnesses and children and this in the commune before the official party in November with the clothes of circumstances The official wedding will be in November with all guests,” the coach announced on Facebook.
