MTN8 2016

Bucs Coach's Advice To City For MTN8

The highly anticipated MTN8 semi-final first-leg between Bidvest Wits and Cape Town City will take place on Saturday, and Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral has provided some advice for his former club, that has since been rebranded.

The former Mpumalanga Black Aces coach believes that City need to be aware of the danger that Wits pose on the counter-attack, saying that keeping possession will be very important.

“City simply have to be very careful how they play against Wits. When they lose possession, they need to be very wary. They get at you quickly, put in crosses very early and that can cause damage. Cape Town City have to be very clever and keep possession. They must not give the ball away!” Ertugral told the Siya crew.
