Free State Stars coach Luc Eymael says he is tired of the rumours linking him with move to Kaizer Chiefs and SuperSport United.

Ea Lla Koto has proven to be Absa Premiership title contenders this campaign under Eymael, they currently occupy third place on the table with 37 points, trailing log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns by six points.

The former Polokwane City mentor admits that he has a buyout clause in his contract, but has played down reports linking him with a move to Chiefs or SuperSport.

“Every day I get calls from journalists asking me about the same question… blah blah blah and all these rumours,” Eymael told KickOff.com.

“I still have a contract with Free State Stars. I have a buyout clause. I don’t know anything about these rumours about Chiefs and SuperSport. If there is interest, [Stars boss] Rantsi [Mokoena] will be the first person to know. I will know. You know me, I am an honest person, I will tell you.”

Free State Stars will next take on Chippa United when the two side’s square off at the Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Saturday, with kick-off set for 15:30.
