Cape Town – Free Country Stars & # 39; catch up Ernst Middendorp to take over from Luc Eymael can be prevented because Germany can only be reported to be available in January.
Eymael parted ways with Ea Lla Koto recently after running a bad form and has since led Premier League club El Geish on a short-term contract.
Nonetheless, reports emerged that Bintang was pursuing Middendorp who had previously served with Free State-based clothing.
Germany are currently with Bangkok United in Thailand as their technical director but appear to be contracted to that side until at least January 2019.
According to a Laduma football website sources, that step might fail.
The source of the publication said: "So far, the Bintang Negara Bebas has failed in pursuing Ernst Middendorp to return to the club.
"The club has been told that the coach may only be available in January. They tend to value other options."
Stars may have to appoint other coaches from elsewhere because they have three matches to play in 2018 in both the CAF and Absa Premiership Confederations Cups.
