Just after their 1-0 loss to Cape Town City in the South African Absa Premiership on Wednesday night, Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael has downplayed links with the Ugandan national team coaching job.
The Belgian manager has been mentioned as one of the managers to have applied for the vacant Cranes coaching role.
Media reports from Uganda this week suggested that the former Polokwane City mentor was touted as Milutin Sredojevic's successor.
“Again? Last time was before I came to Free State Stars, and yes, that was true. But no, I have not been informed recently about that. I haven’t had any contact with them now,” he said on Wednesday.
“But I receive offers every day. But to come back here, I had to do different things following the mistake I did against Polokwane City, and I want to prove that I can take a team and do good things.”
The tactician added that he always receives offers, yet insists he is fully focused on his current project with Ea Lla Koto.
“Offers are always there. Two days ago I refused an offer from Algeria, one week ago it was CS Sfaxien from Tunisia. Wydad Casablanca also contacted me before they played Sundowns,” adds the 58-year-old.
“I also had an offer from Namibia, but I would really like to do a good job at Free State Stars. And like I’ve always said, I really appreciate your country, it’s a very balanced league in Africa with good infrastructure.”
