Coaches Who Have Mentored Both Sowetan Giants

Muhsin Ertugral is officially the new head coach of Orlando Pirates, and his move to Mayfair sees him join a list of managers who have coached both Kaizer Chiefs and the Buccaneers. Can you name the others? 

It's become a common trend in South Africa for tacticians to join rival clubs, and since the 1980s, six mentors have headed up the bench of both Soweto giants. 

Ertugral enjoyed two spells with the Naturena outfit, the first beginning in 1999 and lasting four seasons.

His spell at The Village marked his debut coaching experience in Mzansi, while his second spell lasted two years. With the exception of a league title, Muhsin won a number of trophies while heading up the Glamour Boys.

He will now take charge of Pirates, with his first big game expected to by the Carling Black Label Cup against Chiefs. His arrival means he is the sixth coach to have crossed the Sowetan divide.

Which other tacticians have done so too? Browse through the gallery above to find out.

What do you make of Ertugral's appointment?
