Reflecting on his time with the Black Leopards team, coach Luc Eymael shared how his discipline nature helped players such as Edwin Gyimah improve their game.

"Yes, some of them were not happy in the beginning when I got there because me, I want my players to work seriously. I want to work with discipline and things like that. Most of the players improved when I was there”, the coach said in an interview with Soccer Laduma

He added, “Look at Thuso Phala before I arrived at Black Leopards, and when I arrived at the club, and when I left the club.

“I can also talk about (Thabiso) Mokoena, (Lesedi) Kapinga, and (Edwin) Gyimah, they all did well.

“Look at the goalkeeper, and not this one (Rotshidzwa Muleka) but (Jonas) Mendes when he wasn't injured. That's the spine of the team."

After leaving Black Leopards, Coach Luc Eymael is now working with Tanzanian giants Young Africans.
