The PSL has confirmed that Luc Eymael has been found guilty of contravening an order of the league's Dispute Resolution Chamber, and has been fined R100 000 as a result.
On 14 April, the PSL DRC ordered Eymael to return to Polokwane City to serve as their head coach for the duration of his contract of employment, which was found to be valid and binding.
At the time, the Belgian had already accepted a coaching job offer at Bloemfontein Celtic, and had already been announced by the Mangaung outfit as their new head coach.
Having already announced earlier this month that Eymael was charged for failing to comply with an order of the PSL DRC and that he would appear in front of the PSL Disciplinary Committee on 16 May, the league has confirmed that the Belgian mentor was found guilty and sentenced to a fine of R100 000, with R75 000 of it suspended.
The league has provided a summary of the PSL's Disciplinary Committee outcome.
