Ertugral Talks On Improved Form With On-Loan Sundowns Striker
Muhsin Ertugral Is Happy With Yannick Zakri's Return To The Squad
Ajax Cape Town returned to winning ways last night against SuperSport United, with Yannick Zakri’s return one of the positives for the Urban Warriors.
Zakri, who completed a loan move from Mamelodi Sundowns in January this year, had been sidelined with an injury in Ajax’s previous three fixtures prior to their clash against Matsatsantsa last night, although making a full recovery to help the team to a much-needed victory in the Absa Premiership.
Despite the two goals coming from Fagrie Lakay and Mario Booysen, the Ivorian’s influence in the game was much appreciated by his Turkish-born head coach.
“We want that element that he can hold onto the ball and take players on and feed the other players if he can find that right moment to release and be available again, that will give us an unbelievable situation and that can help us with away games. Obviously, he was not playing because he was injured but you can see what kind of element he gives to the team,” Head Coach Muhsin Ertugral told the media last night.
Ajax will play away to Bloemfontein Celtic on the weekend, where they will once again aim for no less than a win as they look to continue moving away from the relegation zone.
