Last week, the Turkish coach shocked the South African football fraternity when he announced on live television that he would be resigning from the position of head coach at Bucs, following a disappointing 6-1 loss against SuperSport United last Tuesday.

True to his word, Ertugral did submit his resignation to Pirates, as confirmed by the club’s chairman Irvin Khoza in a press conference on Wednesday last week.

Speaking exclusively to Soccer Laduma, Ertugral expressed his sadness at leaving the club without having fulfilled the expectations of the millions of its supporters.

“(Sighs heavily) I feel very sad not to have been able to stay very long at the club, in order to put the philosophy and the type of football I wanted to see at the club in place. I’m sad that I was not able to transform the team’s style because, last season, the team was not good enough. So I feel sad not to have been able to fulfil the expectations of the millions of Pirates’ supporters,” said Ertugral.
