Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces chairman Mario Morfou revealed the decision to appoint Muhsin Ertugral as the club's head coach was a relatively straightforward one.
Ertugral has significant Premiership experience, having had previous coaching roles with Kaizer Chiefs, Ajax Cape Town and Golden Arrows, and was named coach of the year for the 2006/07 season.
The Turkish tactician was appointed to succeed Clive Barker after a difficult season that saw Aces finish trophyless and outside of the top eight.
He has experienced success in South Africa before, having claimed MTN8, Telkom Knockout and Nedbank Cup titles in his previous roles.
Morfou revealed that, while there were some strong candidates to apply for the position, Ertugral was comfortably the best option they had.
"He was an obvious choice and stood out head and shoulders above the rest of the candidates," Morfou told Aces' official website.
"We liked his vision and deep knowledge of the game and couple with his passion, we firmly believe that Aces are moving in the right direction."
Ertugral promised Aces fans the club will be play exciting football next season.
"We are going to build a team that will play exciting and entertaining football and we would love to see our supporters and fans in general coming to our matches because of the brand of football we play," he said.
"We have a big task ahead, and I'm looking forward to a great PSL season."
