Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces coach Muhsin Ertugral wishes he had the chance to advise Stuart Baxter before the coach left Kaizer Chiefs for Turkish club Genclerbirligi.

Baxter surprised many when he opted to take on a new challenge after steering Chiefs to the Premiership and MTN8 titles last season.

However, After just two games in charge, the notoriously trigger-happy club boss sacked Baxter. The Turkish-born Ertugral empathised with Baxter's plight, having experienced something similar during his time at the helm of Sivasspor.

"I think Stuart experienced a football environment that was very demanding and, as I said, sometimes unbearable," Ertugral told Soccer Laduma.

"Unfortunately I couldn't speak to him, otherwise I would have warned him about what he was going to face.

"He went to a club where coaches have... let me say... no value. He has done so much for football and is a very good coach."
