Manyama Leaves A Message For Ertugral

Cape Town City skipper Lebogang Manyama spent several years playing under the watchful eye of Muhsin Ertugral, and after the Turk announced he would be moving back to Europe, "Lebz" left him a message. Did you see it?

The former Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates coach shocked everyone on Tuesday when he took to Twitter to announce he would be moving back to Europe to pursue his career there.

Ertugral, who last sat on the bench in November just before resigning from his position as Bucs' head coach, launched the careers of many footballers, and helped them develop their games beyond what they thought was possible.

Manyama is one player who holds the 57-year-old in high esteem, and his parting message for the coach is nothing short of beautiful.

He wrote on his Instagram account: "For a coach who always saw more in me. More than I thought I could ever be; who taught me to discipline this mind and body I am in. Who raised expectations and dreams; beyond just an athlete's schemes, beyond normal endurance, beyond myself and ever since… I am a greater person for it, because you taught me not to ever QUIT. Good luck in your future endeavours, I wish you nothing but the best."

SuperSport United's Reneilwe Letsholonyane also commented on the post, and he, too, had high praise for his former mentor, saying: "One of the best in the business. I'm thankful for his contribution for me to be where I am today. Thank you."

Would you liked to have seen Ertugral stay in Mzansi?
