Cape Town - Former Black Leopards boss Luc Eymael
has revealed that he has turned down an offer from AmaZulu and will be
taking charge of Tanzanian side Young Africans SC.
Eymael was at the helm of Leopards for just three months earlier in
the season before resigning. And since his resignation, the Belgian
mentor revealed he has been in talks with Usuthu but an agreement failed
to materialise after the KZN club kept stalling.
"I'm leaving the country. I'm going to Tanzania to sign with Yanga," Eymael told KickOff.
"The deal is not yet signed, I'm at the airport. I'm flying to
Tanzania to watch the team at a tournament today and to sign my
"I've been in touch with them since two days now, three days. The
chairman and the main sponsor are here to meet me in Joburg. Two days
ago they flew me from Polokwane to Joburg.
"I was also in touch with AmaZulu since two, three days but they
delayed, they delayed all the time you know as they were waiting for the
game yesterday as they drew [2-2 with Cape Town City].
"Now they ask me to wait again, and me I don't have time to wait you know... my passion is soccer, and I have to work.
"The challenge of Yanga is for me a good challenge because I have to put the team on a good track.
"And I think I can again try to compete to be in the top three and
compete for a place in the Champions League or Confederation Cup so it's
a good thing."
