Cape Town - Luc Eymael says he wants to remain in South Africa and look for a new coaching role after parting ways with Free State Stars.

With Ea Lla Koto struggling in the Absa Premiership this season, a decision was taken for the Belgian head coach to move on.

Eymael has previously coached in the PSL with Polokwane City, while recent rumours suggest that the 59-year-old could be in line to take over at Black Leopards, who were dealt a blow with the resignation of Joel Masutha.

Eymael told the Sowetan: "We've parted ways in good terms. It's over. it's a mutual separation."

He added: "My priority is to remain in SA. I appreciate a lot of things in this country. I have to analyse offers. I have received different offers from various countries but I will wait and see if I get any from SA teams.

"I think it was the best moment to leave. I will always be grateful to this club for giving me the opportunity.

"We had to show each other mutual respect. It's part of soccer life. When you get a lot of points you are a good coach but when you lose you're no more a good coach."
