Eymael ordered to return to City

Bloemfontein Celtic coach Luc Eymael has been ordered to return to former club Polokwane City after the Premiership's Dispute Resolution Chamber ruled against him.

Eymael left Rise and Shine under a cloud after he reportedly fell out with the club's management over the overall running of the team.

However, the DRC has ruled that the coach left City unlawfully and has now determined he must return to the team to once more take charge despite taking over the reigns at Celtic.

Siwelele Chief Executive Officer Khumbulani Konco said: "We are obviously devastated by the news. The coach, after perusing and going through the verdict documents has since decided to appeal the case. The coach obviously feels absolutely dismayed, hence the request for the DRC to re-look at the matter and we are hoping for positive aftermaths."

The 57-year-old Belgian football manager is going to appeal the verdict as he looks to continue his tenure with the outfit from Bloemfontein.
