Rayon’s Eymael eyes Afc Leopards switch
DESPITE being in Rwanda, Rayon Sports head coach Luc Eymael’s heart is still attached to Kenya football giants AFC Leopards.
He told Kenyan media this week that he would consider a switch back to the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) giants if an opportunity materializes, as he says he had a project at the club and left the business unfinished.
Eymael parted ways with Leopards in September 2013 to be replaced by James Nandwa whose position at the club is now a subject of much discussion after an unconvincing start to the 2014 season and the Belgian, on a six month deal at the Rwandese side admits a return to Nairobi would be hard to turn down.
Speaking to futaa.com recently, he admitted that he is happy at his current team and has an interesting crop of players who have so far played a crucial role as Rayon Sport stays firmly in the title race but added that he would trigger the buyout clause in his contract in case Ingwe came calling.
“I had a project at Leopards and of course when I left I had unfinished business at the club so it is a door that is not completely shut. Well, I have a contract here and everything is good,”
“We are in the title race, the players are great, fans are terrific and even though no one has contacted me officially from Leopards, a chance to return may be hard to resist,”
“The most important thing in this case is to respect my contractual agreement with Rayon; I have a buyout clause and we have to respect that,” Eymael said.
Eymael’s side, currently second in the Rwandan top flight, has a great chance to boost their title ambitions should they beat Mukura this weekend and force a positive result against APR next weekend when the two sides meet in a rivarly derby.
