Cape Town - Luc Eymael confirmed he will meet with the Polokwane City chairman Johnny Mogaladi, as he seeks clarity on his future at the club.

Eymael has performed way beyond expectations at Rise and Shine in his first ever season as a manager in the South African Premiership.

The experienced Belgian tactician has led the unfancied side to fifth place, only four points of league leaders Cape Town City.

While his impressive management and attacking display of football at the Limpopo-based side has earned plaudits, his immediate future is unclear, with a host of African clubs said to be vying for his services.

Despite admitting offers from club's in North Africa, the former Al-Merrikh head coach hinted he would honour his contract if the club wants him to continue in his position.

"I need a meeting with my chairman," the 57-year-old said, after the 3-2 loss to Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday.

"It's two weeks, I sent an email to the chairman to meet him. I have to meet him, I have to discuss with him.

"A contract is a contract. I am working hard. Have you see Polokwane City with 21 points? Don't forget the two points we dropped against Pirates, the two points against Baroka."
