Cape Town - Former Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael has signed a short-term contract to manage Egyptian Premier League outfit El Geish FC.

Eymael parted ways with Stars earlier this month after a difficult start to the campaign under his guidance.

However, the Belgian mentor proved a hit overall with Ea Lla Koto as last season the side finished in sixth position and won the Nedbank Cup.

Nonetheless, indifferent form in 2018/19 saw him leave the team and he has now signed a deal with his new club in North Africa.

He told KickOff website: “I'm in Egypt with El Geish, it's the club of the army in Cairo.

“I have not yet signed but I already gave training, will sign a short-term contract until the end of May with a buy-out clause. I hope one day that I will able to come back to a big team in South Africa.

“But one thing at a time, now I'm focusing on my job here sure. I want to again thank all the fans and the people at Free State Stars who supported me, all my players again.

“I will sign officially on Monday until the end of May.”
