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.

Meanwhile, the future remains uncertain for outgoing head coach Eric Tinkler.
