Judgement reserved in coach Eymael matter


The SAFA Ethics Committee, chaired by Judge Sisi Khampepe on Friday, 17 September 2021 heard the case of coach Luc Eymael in which he is accused of a racial outburst.

Eymael was represented by his agent and judgement in the hearing was reserved.

The 61-year-old caused a global stir by allegedly calling Young Africans supporters monkeys and dogs who know nothing about football.

Twice, Chippa United then tried to appoint Eymael as their coach in the aftermath of this controversial outburst but on both occasions, SAFA, SAFCA, the players union and various governments departments condemned the appointment.

His case was then referred to the Ethics Committee whose decision will have far-reaching repercussions for the controversial mentor.

The case on Friday, was chaired by Judge Khampepe who was assisted by Judge Ronnie Pillay and Western Cape attorney, Candylee de Sousa.
