Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic CEO Khumbulani Konco has claimed that Polokwane City's chairman Johnny Mogaladi is responsible for the delay in registering new coach Luc Eymael.

The Belgian mentor put an end to his eight-month spell with Rise and Shine when he handed in his resignation two weeks ago, before subsequently being confirmed as the new Phunya Sele Sele coach less than 24 hours later.

However, the coaching merry-go-round between the two teams has not been sorted out, with the matter now set to appear in front of the PSL’s Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC), with Celtic's chief executive accusing Mogaladi of sour grapes. 

"I don’t know why Polokwane City are refusing to accept that coach Luc wanted to move on, you will have to ask Johnny for more details," as quoted by IOL website.

"We have a hearing on March 30 and we will know then what our next step is. 

"We were advised to hold off on registering the coach until the matter goes before the league’s DRC.

"You don’t want a situation where you have the coach on the bench for one game and then suddenly he’s ordered to return to his previous club," he concluded.
