Cape Town - Free State Stars head coach
Luc Eymael says the likes of Edward Manqele and Mohammed Anas could be sold if
the right offers come in.
Stars have been the
surprise package in the league this season and moved into second spot on the
standings, three points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns after a 1-0 victory
over Cape Town City last weekend.
As such, their top
performers, including Anas and Manqele, have both been linked with a move away
from the club in the transfer window, with Chippa United and Bidvest Wits both
thought to be interested.
And Eymael believes
that if the players' hearts are not with Ea Lla Koto, it could make sense to
cash in on them.
"I will never
force a player to remain at my club who is not 200 percent committed to the
team‚" Eymael said as quoted by the TimesLIVE website.
"I have discussed
with the chairman (Mike Mokoena) and we said yes‚ if the players can earn more
money elsewhere and if we can make a good deal‚ then we should let them go.
"They have been
contacted by other teams‚ this is a fact‚ but we have not received official
contact and until then‚ there is no decision to make on whether they stay or
go," he added.
The club signed
Congo-Brazzaville marksman Harris Tchilimbou last week and are also expected to
announce the arrival of Amido Balde, another striker, who has played in
Scotland, Portugal‚ Israel‚ Belgium and France.
