In their upcoming match, Stars will travel to the Mother City to face National First Division side Ubuntu Cape Town in the Nedbank Cup. 

The Nedbank Cup quarter-final match will take place at Athlone Stadium on Saturday afternoon. 

Speaking to the Siya crew, Stars head coach Luc Eymael says he has been following recent matches of Ubuntu to study their weaknesses in preparation for their upcoming match.

“I followed the game for Ubuntu against AmaZulu and I saw a lot of quality in them. I also followed their game against Polokwane City. We’ll have to be very careful. It’s never easy to play against a team from a lower division. 

“But I know they are also concerned about their status in the First Division (Ubuntu are 15th on the NFD log). They have to survive. We will do our best to try and win the game. We follow and study all our opponents and try to work on their weaknesses,” said Eymael.

Eymael has been linked with a potential move to Kaizer Chiefs in recent weeks, following the progress he has made in the PSL -  firstly with Polokwane City - and now with the Bethlehem outfit.

It is believed that the Belgian tactician could be considered for a move to Amakhosi at the end of the season, should the Naturena club decide to make technical team changes for next season.

As things stand, Steve Komphela's contract as Chiefs head coach is set to finish in June. There has been no indication of whether the Soweto giants will be renewing the deal with Komphela or not.

This coach for a team like my Chiefs who don't have enough discipline under the mentorship of the school teacher Mr Khompela. Truth be told this gentleman has failed dismally at Chiefs and I'm sure he is not even going to re-apply for his position because he's got nothing to point at at this great team. Mr Motaung please just talk to bra mike we know he will gladly offer this great coach to his favourite team(By the way Bra Mike is a Chiefs of many many years for those mafikezolos)

Fadlu Davids has done much better than Luc and Rhulani but LieDuma just wants to glamourise these two. Give credit and props where they are due
