After it was revealed earlier today that Turkish coach, Muhsin Ertugral, was back in South Africa to discuss terms with Ajax Cape Town, the club have now confirmed that he is their new Technical Director.
The news comes just days before the Urban Warriors’ crucial game with city rivals, Chippa United, who are also battling relegation alongside Ajax.
It is thought that the Cape Town-based outfit believe that Ertugral’s experience could be vital to them in their quest to remain in the PSL this season, and with him having worked with them before, he knows how the club works.
Ajax’s CEO, George Comitis, confirmed the news to the Siya crew, explaining that the Turkish coach had agreed to become the club’s new Technical Director, effective immediately.
It remains to be seen what lies ahead for the current head coach, Jan Versleijen, who may be set to leave the club.
It is thought that Ertugral will be offered the role of head coach of the club should he help them survive relegation this season.
