Ertugral: Our Conversations Are Like A Stuck Record

Ajax Cape Town head coach Muhsin Ertugral feels that his side have been hard done by with the stop-start season that the Urban Warriors have had to deal with.

Ajax have had their matches spaced out over a substantially longer period than any other PSL side by a series of postponements.

The Urban Warriors have not managed to find the rhythm they enjoyed after the arrival of Muhsin Ertugral late last season, which saw them survive their relegation battle, at the expense of fellow Cape side, Chippa United.

Ertugral feels that it’s the lack of continuity of matches that is partly to blame for the team’s poor form in the opening games of the 2013/14 Absa Premiership campaign.

Ertugral told Soccer-Laduma, “Our conversations are like a stuck record these days. It’s just break after break and we cannot get any momentum or continuity going. Every time we play a match, we never get a chance to go away from the match, work on our mistakes and rectify them in the next match.”

However, Ertugral knows that not all the blame can be attributed to the fixture debacle, as the Urban Warriors have been struck with an abundance of injuries as well as the matter of adjustment to top flight football for some of the Turks' youngsters.

“There has been fixture changes, yes, but we do not blame it all on that. We have been a bit sluggish, but our injuries haven’t allowed us to have any continuity either. The amount of youngsters in our team also means that they still need to adapt to the PSL ,” added Ertugral.
