Ertugral apologises for touchline antics

Kaizer Chiefs coach Muhsin Ertugral has apologised to the supporters and the club for an incident that took place after the 0-0 draw against African Wanderers in Durban on Sunday.

When the referee signaled the end of the match, Ertugral angrily slammed the chair to the ground in frustration – a move that did not go down well with management and some of the supporters.

Following a meeting with club chairman Kaizer Motaung on Thursday, Ertugral admitted that his behaviour was rather over the top.

"Obviously I was very disappointed and angry that we did not win that match," said Ertugral. "But my behaviour was unprofessional and inappropriate and I would like to apologise to the supporters, especially the youth and management."

"I spoke to the chairman today (Thursday) and he expressed his disappointment and I sincerely apologised for that. There were disabled people seating behind me and through my actions they could have been injured."

Ertugral, who has recently come under heavy criticism from the supporters, has been given a vote of confidence by club management and is now preparing the team for a crucial Coca-Cola Cup quarterfinal clash against Golden Arrows on Sunday in Durban.
