Cape Town - Free State Stars coach Luc
Eymael insists he is perfectly happy showing his commitment to the club after
missing out on the Kaizer Chiefs job.
The Belgian was seen as a potential
successor to Steve Komphela at Naturena after clinching six-placed finishes
with Polokwane City and Ea Lla Koto in the past two seasons.
Eymael quickly turned around the fortunes
of the Bethlehem outfit, who narrowly avoided relegation from the Premiership
in 2016/17, but qualified for the MTN 8 in his first campaign at the helm.
However, Amakhosi finally settled on former
Stars coach Giovanni Solinas last week, and his replacement has no issue at
being overlooked by the Soweto giants.
"He speaks French and he was at Stars
when I was at Polokwane City and he was also in Algeria at ES Setif," the
58-year-old was quoted as saying by Sowetan Live.
"He's a good coach who likes his team
to play with plenty of possession so all the best to him at Kaizer Chiefs.
"If no big team wants to sign me, it's
no problem. I have said before that I will show commitment to Stars if no
concrete offer comes in."
Solinas was not on the touchline as Chiefs
beat Eymael's side on penalties to win the 2018 Bokone Bophirima Maize Cup
final on Saturday, with the Italian still awaiting his work permit.
