Eymael was sacked by the Tanzanian club on Monday after comparing Yanga fans to “monkeys and dogs”.

Speaking to the Daily News the first time after Yanga announced the sacking of Eymael,  Mkwasa said that the decision to fire Eymael was perfect.

“Even during games, he used to insult players as well as match officials and on several occasions, we were preventing him to do that in order to save him from being fined,” said Mkwasa.

“Abusive language was part of his (Eymael) life, those things were not known outside but I think everyone has figured out what kind of person he was.”

“Football is always a fair game as such; There was no need for him to insult players, Yanga fans and the whole public,” he added.

Meanwhile, the South African Football Association (Safa) and the Tanzanian Football Association have indicated that they will report Eymael to Fifa and Caf.
