Luc Eymael confirms Young Africans SC move as head coach


The Belgian resigned as Black Leopards coach on 27 December last year after only three months in charge of the Limpopo club.

"I'm leaving the country. I'm going to Tanzania to sign with Yanga," Eymael tells

"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 contract.

"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."

Eymael also revealed that Absa Premiership side AmaZulu had been in touch with him to replace Slovakian coach Jozef Vukusic, but he could not wait any longer due to delays.

"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."
