Ey­mael gets red card

CityPress - - Sport - Ti­mothy Molobi –

Luc Ey­mael has been grounded!

Last week, City Press re­ported that ag­grieved Polok­wane City lodged a com­plaint with the Pre­mier Soc­cer League re­gard­ing the con­duct of the Bel­gian men­tor.

This was after the coach had re­signed in a huff and joined Bloem­fontein Celtic the fol­low­ing day.

Now, the league has re­fused to reg­is­ter Ey­mael un­til his mat­ter with City has been re­solved.

As a re­sult, the coach was barred from shout­ing in­struc­tions from Celtic’s bench dur­ing yes­ter­day’s league game against Cape Town City. The case was post­poned to March 31. In­ter­est­ingly, if the Bel­gian wins his cases, his first match in charge of Celtic will be against the same City on April 1.

A de­jected Celtic chief ex­ec­u­tive Khum­bu­lani Konco con­firmed they were dealt a blow by the out­come of the sit­ting on Fri­day.

Konco said they would stick with care­taker coach Lehlo­honolo Seema un­til Ey­mael was reg­is­tered with the league.

A City in­sider said the team still re­garded Ey­mael as their coach as it had not ter­mi­nated his con­tract.
