Former AFC Leopards head coach Luc Eymael has been fired by Tanzanian giants Yanga SC after a classless rant calling the club’s fans ‘stupid and uneducated’ following a poor run this season where they finished second in the standings.
The Belgian went ahead to equate the fans to ‘monkeys or dogs who just bark’ after his decisions were shouted down in their final match of the season against Lipuli where they won 1-0.
“The leadership of Yanga has been saddened by comments made by coach Luc Eymael which have gone viral on social media. Following the unsportsmanlike comments, the leadership of Yanga has decided to fire Eymael with immediate effect and he should make sure he leaves the country as soon as possible,” a communique from Yanga’s leadership, signed by Secretary General Simon Patrick stated.
Eymael who joined Yanga at the beginning of the season has been at constant loggerheads with everyone in Tanzania since his arrival and his latest rant, full of pride and arrogance was his last straw in the East African country.
