How Will Muhsin Deal With The 'Showboaters'?

The big news has been broken! Muhsin Ertugral has passed Eric Tinkler on his way out the door as head coach of mighty Orlando Pirates. This move has been welcomed by many supporters and many compliments have been extended to Dr Irvin Khoza for taking control of the situation and taking steps to ensure glory next season. However, there is one doubt that lingers… How will Ertugral deal with the "fancy footwork" footballers?

Pirates are a unique club in that how you win is just as important as winning itself. Supporters of the Buccaneers will not accept a victory if it comes packaged in an ugly game. On top of this, among the team's strongest assets are Thabo Rakhale and Thabo Qalinge, who play a certain brand of football that usually makes a European coach cringe.

"Ertugral, as a coach, means no more skills, which nowadays is called showboating." – Classic Man77

"I'm not too sure whether Ertugral will allow the likes of Myeni, Rakhale, and Qalinge to show off." – bhkabhakalokuqina1

Other supporters think Ertugral has been in South Africa long enough to respect the traditions and style of play exhibited here and shown by Rakhale and Qalinge. One thing supporters know for sure is that Muhsin will do wonders for development as he has always favoured youngsters in his teams.

"Youngsters are coming." – mkhitarian

How do you think the likes of Rakhale and Qalinge will do under the guidance of Ertugral?
