The Premier Soccer League club, Chippa United, have made a U-turn on the appointment of the controversial Luc Eymael for the second time in a space of four months.
Eymael was named as the Technical Advisor of the Chilli Boys earlier in the week, however, due to pressure from several sides, the club terminated the deal with the Belgian tactician.
Late last year Eymael was sacked for racist remarks he made with coaching that Dar es Salaam-based Tanzanian outfit, Young Africans.
Chippa confirmed that they had terminated the agreement with Eymael via a brief statement.
"Chippa have decided not to continue with Eymael’s appointment, who will proceed to return to Belgium.
"It is clear that Eymael himself requires further time to clear his name. He has reassured the club that he will, in his own capacity take legal action concerning his rights, including the dissemination of the offending media clip through his own lawyers.
"We as a club maintain our stance against racism of any form and wish to make it clear that our intended appointment of Eymael would not have happened were the allegations against him have been validated in any form."
In December last year, Chippa appointed Eymael as the head coach, but the deal was cancelled almost immediately.
