Cape Town - New Bloemfontein Celtic coach Luc Eymael is relishing the challenge of turning things around at the struggling Premiership club.

The 57-year-old parted company with Polokwane City last week and was quickly confirmed as the new man at the helm for Phunya Sele Sele.

It seems a surprise move given that Eymael left Rise and Shine sitting seventh in the league standings to take over a team that is languishing just one point above the bottom two in 13th place, with 10 games remaining in the season.

But the Belgian believes that Celtic have everything in place to avoid the dreaded drop at the end of the campaign.

"First, you know I resigned for private reasons and because I couldn't agree on different things that happened in the club [Polokwane City] the last couple of weeks, so I was open and got offers," Eymael told KickOff.

"Why I chose Celtic? Because it is a well structured club, with a good history, good accommodation and good fans.

"I also think they have players that, if they respond well and work hard, can improve and that together we can succeed in the challenge. I also wanted to stay in South Africa.

"I didn't choose the easiest challenge but I'm a man of challenges," he declared.
