Mushin Ertugral Optimistic Ahead of Pirates Game


Ajax Cape Town’s Head Coach, Mushin Ertugrarl expects a different ball game altogether at the Nedbank Cup’s last 32 showpiece, this weekend.

Following their 3-0 victory at the ABSA Premiership clash last week, the Ajax Cape Town will travel to face Orlando Pirates with high confidence this Saturday.

Now that both sides will meet once again, Ertugral doesn’t doubt that the Buccaneers will seek to revenge their recent game in the Mother City.

“They will come at us, but I think they’ll be a little more cautious this time around” he said.

“Different game altogether. I can’t wait to kick-off at Orlando Stadium. I know how much difficult it is for opposing teams to play in Soweto.”

He also shared that with the arrival of Coach Sredojevic MichoOrlando, he is fully aware of how challenging it will be.

“Micho is a great coach and they are very close to success under his guidance. We know how difficult this will be,” said Ertugral.

Match kick-off is set 20:15pm
