The Belgian reveals to Goal that he will seek legal redress with World body Fifa if the club fails to pay him, two weeks after he was shown the door

Former AFC Leopards coach Luc Eymael has accused club officials of failing to pay his two month's salary after being fired last week.

Eymael, who is currently in South Africa, claimed he was falsely promised that his salary for two months amounting to over Sh1 million would be paid before his departure.

"To my surprise club officials have been taking me in circle every time I ask for the money. The last communication was that I would be paid after sponsors Mumias Sugar release the money which I found very unfortunate since this was not the agreement.

"However, I want to warn the club that we had a valid contract which they must adhere to or I will take legal action if need be," Eymael told Goal.

The Belgian further claimed he had been kicked out of his apartment since the club had not paid for it. "All along club officials had assured me that I could stay in the house until end of September. However, last Friday, the management came and ordered me out insisting that it has not been paid for as claimed.

"I was only saved embarrassment because arrangements were already in place for me to travel to South Africa.”

Eymael was fired last week following a spate of poor results that was aggravated by a 3-1 defeat to bogey side Chemelil Sugar in a Kenyan Premier League fixture.

Eymael's position has since been occupied by James Nandwa, who began his reign at Ingwe with a 1-0 win over Chemelil Sugar at Afraha Stadium in a GOtv Shield Cup pre-quarter fixture.
