Pirates and Chiefs coaches have 'a lot to prove' ahead of Soweto Derby

The pressure is on for both Steve Komphela and new Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral ahead of the Soweto Derby on Saturday.

This will be Ertugral's first Soweto Derby as Orlando Pirates coach against Kaizer Chiefs.

While Kaizer Chiefs coach, Kompela, will want to showcase new team acquisitions.

With a poor Derby track record, Ertugral will have to prove himself to fans and supporters, explains Soccer-Laduma journalist Joe Crann.

Crann says both premium clubs are looking to rebuild and transform through new players and coaching staff.

It's going to be interesting insight into how the two teams will play this season and what the new players are capable of.
