Cape Town - Clive Barker stepped down as coach of Mpumalanga Black Aces in March this year, but he is delighted with his new long-term replacement, Muhsin Ertugral.

"The Dog", as Barker is affectionately known, is now involved in youth development and scouting at the club and will be working closely with the Turkish coach. 

He spoke to Sport24 on his view of the incoming coach.

“It’s a delight that Black Aces signed Muhsin,” Barker said.

“He’s got a record in South Africa that’s fairly successful and for that we are right behind him and give him every opportunity to do well at Aces because they’re a growing club and they’ve got the right people running it so let’s just hope everything goes well for them.”

Having struggled to get the right results last season Barker recognised that it won’t be easy for Ertugral either.

“It’s going to be a tough ask because it is a tough league.”
