Free State Stars slumped to their fourth defeat of the Absa Premiership season, and Luc Eymael reveals he felt 'betrayed' by one of his players after the loss to Kaizer Chiefs.
Ea Lla Koto find themselves second-from-bottom in the standings after falling to a 2-0 defeat to the AmaKhosi.
The Stars coach reveals he was upset with Bangaly Keita after the defender was substituted in the first half, despite claiming he was 100%.
“They had two attacks in the first half and they scored two goals. We had two opportunities, we don’t score. I think we’re repeating the same thing every week,” Eymael told SuperSport after the match.
“I don’t know what will happen. I’m trying my best unfortunately things are not going our way and I’m not clear on what is the solution.
“We were repeating this yesterday because we were studying our mistakes where we open the gap in the centre of defence for a through pass.
“I’m very disappointed with some guys we had a meeting last week. I said if you’re not 100 percent fit for the game then say it. But I had a problem with one of our centre back [Bangali Keita], I called him today and he said, “no, no I’m 100 percent.”
“I told him pay attention because I don’t want to lose you after 20 or 40 minutes because I will lose a substitution but he said “no, I’m okay” and you saw what happened. When things are like that you feel betrayed. It’s hard to accept."
