Belgian coach Luc Eymael is keen to handle Gor Mahia if the club tables an offer for his services.

The former AFC Leopards tactician is a free agent after his contract with South African side Polokwane City ended last month. Speaking exclusively to Goal from his native country, Eymael revealed that a host of clubs are after his services but he can listen to K'Ogalo if they approach him.

Eymael also confirmed that Polokwane City are ready to release him if he gets a job outside South Africa. “I have talked to my chairman at Polokwane and he has no issues at all. I can join any team outside South Africa with his (chairman) blessing.”

He added, “I have received several offers from as far as India, Morocco and Tunisia but I cannot turn down a chance to handle Gor Mahia if they come for me and the offer proves to be good. I respect Gor Mahia, they are a good club with fantastic fans and will want to win trophies with them. It is an offer that I can jump into easily if it arises."

Gor Mahia are without a coach after Brazilian Ze Maria resigned at half stage of the season on Thursday. The Brazilian was at the helm of the fifteen times league champions for one and a half years after taking over from Frank Nuttall. Gor Mahia chairman Ambrose Rachier revealed the exit of Ze Maria to Goal saying the tactician never cited any 'serious' reason for his exit. "Yes, Ze Maria has handed in his resignation letter, but he did not give any solid reason for his exit.
