THE BREAKDOWN: Ertugral Tactically Superior To Komphela?

Muhsin Ertugral An Early Candidate To Replace Steve Komphela

By Kyle Smith - Sep 23, 2017 11:59 AM @KyleLaduma

Muhsin Ertugral is amongst the early candidates linked with the Kaizer Chiefs head coach role, should under-pressure Steve Komphela leave the club and we take a look at whether the former Chiefs coach has what it takes to replace the 50-year-old.

Komphela Irate With Wits Staff Member

In Soccer Laduma issue number 1041’s Siya Special, the crew took a look at the possible changes that could be made to the Chiefs technical team in the near future and identified Ertugral as one of a number of early candidates that could take over the head coach position should Komphela part ways with the club, but it begs the question as to whether Ertugral would be able to succeed in a third stint at the club.

Click through the images above to compare Steve Komphela’s team statistics with Chiefs as well as Ertugral’s with Mpumalanga Black Aces and Orlando Pirates.

In Ertugral’s stint with Mpumalanga Black Aces, the team had a respectable record of 0.97 goals conceded per game, which is identical to that of Komphela’s spell at Chiefs. However, in 15 games at Pirates, that figure rose to 1.53, which showed that he struggled in terms of his defensive structure at Chiefs’ cross-town rivals. Furthermore, in attack, that Pirates team could manage just a goal a game, while his average at Black Aces was 1.23 goals per game. By contrast, Komphela’s attacking structure, which has been criticised by many, has seen a return of 1.28 goals per game, indicating that Komphela seems to be better suited for the club’s aspirations in both defence and attack.

Furthermore, Komphela’s possession (53.27%) and passing (490.28 per game) have been superior to Ertugral’s figures at both Pirates and Aces, which indicates that he has been more successful with what he has gotten out of his midfielders at Chiefs.

Chiefs To Swoop In For Musona?

Where Ertugral does outstrip Komphela is that at least one of the teams that he’s coached since Komphela’s arrival in the Chiefs dugout in 2015 has taken more shots per game, made more tackles, made more ground and aerial challenges and held possession of the ball more frequently in the opposition’s half. This indicates that his players are brought into action more frequently than Chiefs’ players.

Bearing in mind that Ertugral’s environment in the dugouts at Aces and Pirates was different to that which Komphela has had to deal with at Chiefs and therefore the numbers don’t tell the whole story.

 

Do you think Kaizer Chiefs should let Komphela go?

Mushin Ertugral is a 'quiter' and lacks patients with 'himself'.....Ruud Krol is a winner n would take Amakhosi to new heights if only the hiring stuctures where managed by professionals...

Absolutely yes no way other than letting him go, he won't go anywhere with Chiefs. The worse thing is his formation I don't like it and his substitution as well is not ayoba. Steve don't have plan B if plan A failed to deliver
