Belgian international Luc Eymael says that maybe things could have been different for Free State Stars if he had stayed.

The Bethlehem outfit was automatically relegated from the PSL to the National First Division earlier this month after they lost 1-0 against Mamelodi Sundowns at the Goble Park Stadium.

The win in turn saw Sundown’s win the Absa Premiership league for a ninth time.

Eymael resigned as head coach in November last year after a string of bad results.

The former Stars coach says when he left the side were in position eight on the Absa Premiership log table.

Eymael went on to join Egyptian side Tala’ea EI Gaish that play in the Egyptian Premier League.

Serbian International Nikola Kavazovic, who took over from Eymael, has since been released by Stars last week. Eymael shares some of the struggles at Stars.

The 59-year-old admits that leaving South Africa to coach in Egypt was a bad move for him.
