The pressure doesn’t only come from football fans but the involvement of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) in the Eastern Cape has also forced Chippa Mpengesi to call an urgent meeting to discuss Eymael’s future at the club.
An unnamed source claims Mpengesi is feeling the heat from the EFF and will, therefore, release Eymael, who is accused of being a racist following his alleged racist remarks he made during his time in Tanzania.
While Mpengesi was hoping to appoint Eymael as head coach of Chippa United, he ended up giving him the position of technical advisor as he’s waiting for clarity from SAFA on whether or not the Belgian mentor is allowed to coach in South Africa.

That clarity hasn’t come forth as yet but the EFF vowed to oppose Eymael’s application for the work permit with Home Affairs should SAFA give Chippa United the green light to hire the former Free State Stars mentor.
“A meeting will be held on Wednesday morning to finalize Eymael’s fate and he will be informed of the decision. The political pressure has been massive and there was no way Mpengesi was going to be able withstand it‚” said the source.
Chippa United communications offer Sisa Majola confirmed the meeting to the publication but played his cards close to his chest on the details.
However, Majola confirmed the management will meet the technical team, which includes Eymael, after the meeting.
