Luc Eymael named new Polokwane City coach


“Polokwane City, ahead of their 2016/17 season preparations, have unveiled Luc Eymael as the new coach to take over the reins from former coach Julio Leal,” read a statement on the club’s official website.

“The Chairman of the club, Johny Mogaladi welcomed the coach to the Province and both parties have opted not to disclose the logistics involving the contract.”

The 56-year-old replaces Leal, who spent just one season at the club, having only managed a 13th-placed finish in the League last season.

Eymael has widespread experience across the African continent, having previously coached the likes of AS Vita, AFC Leopards and Sudanese giants Al Merreikh, from where he joins Rise and Shine.
