Johannesburg - The Premier Soccer League’s Disciplinary Committee (DC) has found Polokwane City coach Luc Eymael guilty of flouting an Order of the League’s Dispute Resolution Chamber when he failed to report back to Polokwane City as coach having resigned with immediate effect and signed a new contract with Bloemfontein Celtic. 

The PSL concluded the matter, just over a month after Eymael defied the Order. 

Eymael appeared before the PSL’s DC on Tuesday evening to answer charges of misconduct. 

On April 14 the Dispute Resolution Chamber ordered Eymael to return to City to serve as head coach for the duration of his contact of employment which was found to be valid and binding, but he defied the order and wanted to remain at Celtic. 

“Mr Eymael was found guilty and sentenced to a fine of R100 000 of which R75 000 was suspended until June 30, 2018, or until a final order is granted by a competent body setting aside the Order of the League’s DRC dated April 14, 2017 or receipt by the League of written confirmation from Polokwane City FC releasing Mr Eymael from any further obligations to Polokwane City FC,” read a statement from the PSL. 

The PSL also said Eymael is not allowed to participate in any football activities unless on behalf of Polokwane City. 

“The suspension of a part of the fine is on condition that Mr. Eymael does not take part in any football related activities other than for and on behalf of Polokwane City FC during the period of suspension,” the PSL said. 

Eymael was ordered to pay all costs incurred at the appeal.
