Former Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael says he has already sent message of support to the Bethlehem outfit.

Stars were automatically relegated from the PSL to the National First Division on Saturday after they lost 1-0 against Mamelodi Sundowns at the Goble Park Stadium.

This saw Sundowns defending their Absa Premiership league title successfully.

The Belgian international coached Stars from August 2017 to November 2018 and says life will go on after relegation.

Eymael went on to join an Egyptian Premier League side Tala’ea EI Gaish.

The 59-year-old coach who has also coached Polokwane City before alluded that it is sad news that the same team he lifted a trophy with just 12 months ago has downgraded. – Report by Tshenolo Meruti
