Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic have concluded swift negotiations with former Polokwane City coach Luc Eymael.

The 57-year-old resigned from Polokwane City less than 24 hours ago when he told Metro FM host Robert Marawa that he was quitting the Limpopo club.

According the Celtic's official website, the Belgian put pen to paper on a two-and-half year deal.

“I met with the coach in Johannesburg this morning (Friday) together with his representatives to discuss our interest in him and after an open meeting we agreed (just after lunch) and he committed towards joining the team” said the club's lawyer Mandla Tshabalala.

The coach conveyed his delight in joining the team he referred to as one of the best in the Absa Premiership.

“I’m happy to join the team of such incredible stature with massive support,” said Eymael.

“When I first arrived in the country, I somehow had a soft spot for the team purely because of the passion and dedication displayed by the supporters and trust me, I share the same thirst to win.

“My philosophy is simple, to play good football with appropriate tactical discipline.

“I have watched the team before and have seen some exceptionally good players that just need guidance and encouragement to start winning again.”

The newly appointed coach will be in Rustenburg to watch the team play against Buya Msuthu in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
