Edwin Gyimah has apologised to his Orlando Pirates teammates and supporters for his recent airport incident with the team’s former coach, Muhsin Ertugral.
Gyimah was involved in an altercation with Ertugral at Cape Town International Airport in September, as Pirates were travelling back to Johannesburg after their game with Ajax Cape Town in the Mother City.
While Bucs chairman Irvin Khoza confirmed that he wanted Ertugral to help the club settle the issue with Gyimah before his shock resignation from the club, the Ghanaian player has in the meantime apologised for the unfortunate incident in his interview with Soccer Laduma.
“I would like to apologise to the supporters – I acted badly and embarrassed the team. I apologise to all my teammates, my loved ones and everybody who supports and loves my game. From now on, I will make sure I do the right things at all times,” said Gyimah.
Following their disappointing 6-1 loss against SuperSport United in their league game on Tuesday, Gyimah and his Bucs’ teammates have turned their focus to the Telkom Knockout clash with Highlands Park on Saturday.
