Ertugral And Gyimah - The Aftermath

Orlando Pirates’ head coach, Muhsin Ertugral and Edwin Gyimah were involved in an altercation last week at the Cape Town International Airport, but what caused the disagreement between the two parties?

Ajax Cape Town hosted the Buccaneers at the Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday, 13 September, for their second Absa Premiership encounter of the campaign.

Before jetting back to Gauteng the next day, there was controversy surrounding the club with the incident that took place at the airport.

According to sources who were present at the scene, the Siya crew can confirm that the brawl between Ertugral and Gyimah derived from an incident which took place in the dressing room during half time on the night of the match.

The club was aware of the incident at the time, but opted against commenting on the matter.

“We are aware of the incident, but cannot comment until we establish the facts of what happened,” the Pirates’ official told the Siya crew.

The Siya crew was subsequently informed that an internal DC will take place within in the club to address the matter. However, another source revealed that Gyimah has apologised to Ertugral and was given permission to resume training with the squad.

The midfielder-cum-defender was not included in the match day squad last night when the Soweto giants hosted Cape Town City at the Orlando Stadium, where they played out a 0-0 draw.
