Stars Confirm Eymael Arrival, Troughton Exit

Free State Stars Have Appointed Luc Eymael

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 24, 2017 12:47 PM
Free State Stars have confirmed the appointment of Luc Eymael as their new head coach, replacing Sammy Troughton.
 
 
The Siya crew previously reported that the Belgian was due to take over after Troughton was relieved of his position, and it has now been announced that he has penned a two-year deal at the club after leaving Polokwane City earlier this year.
 
A statement from the club's general manager, Rantsi Mokoena said:
 
“Free State Stars Football Club confirms the appointment of Mr. Luc Eymael as the new Head Coach of the team. The Coach and club have entered into a two years contract and we trust and belief that with his experience, passion and work ethic he is the right person to take Free State Stars back to its winning ways.
 
“It is however with regret that we had to terminate our contract with Coach Sammy as the mutual feeling was that the two could not work together because of their different philosophies of football; as the saying goes; "There can only be one bull in a kraal' and the two coaches belief that they are both head coaches and as a result it would have been difficult for Coach Sammy to work under Coach Luc as an assistant.
 
“We want to take this opportunity to thank Sammy for the effort and the role that he played in helping FSS prepare for the 2017l18 season and most importantly we would like to take this opportunity to wish him the best of luck for his future endeavours.”

Motaung should have taken Eymal and given Free State Star this useless Steve Khompela.I want to tell Steve that he must enjoy the high life that Chiefs has given to him because I can guarantee that he will never coach another high profile team in SA.As for FSS I must admit that they've signed a very good coach in Eymal. He is a sort of coach that the likes of FSS need and I can assure them that they are going to be a better team this season they just need to support him.

These Mokoenas interest for football died a long time ago,I think its time for them to leave our football and PSL must not stand in their way this time around if they want to sell

Sammy Troughton is not a bad coach in fact he is one of the hard working under rated coaches who uncovered many talented unknown players in our league,FSS was bad for him let's see what they do with Luc Eymael

Some decisions are an abuse of people’s emotions, not long ago Mr Troughton was appointed, i am sure he celebrated, after 2 games in charged, he has been released from this contract (dismissed). Who do you fault, the board decision making and their lack of maturity or the coach lack to see the board true short-cited vision to beyond what he has been told…
