New Orlando Pirates coach, Muhsin Ertugral, is a winner - David Kekana

Orlando Pirates have scored by appointing Muhsin Ertugral as the new head coach, according to SABC soccer analyst David Kekana.

Ertugral has signed a three year contract with the club and will assume his duties from 1 July.

Kekana says that the club had a poor season last year and will need to be successful ahead of its 80th anniversary in 2017.

Whenever there's a big milestone, the chairman of Orlando Pirates demands that the team be successful on the field. They've got to win games.
