Ertugral furious after Nedbank Cup loss

Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces coach Muhsin Ertugral was unhappy with both the match officials and his own players after Friday's 2-1 loss to SuperSport United.

Aces scored early in the first-half through Judas Moseamedi in their Nedbank Cup last-eight tie in Pretoria on Friday night, going on to squander several chances to add to their tally.

This allowed SuperSport to hit back with two second-half goals (Jeremy Brockie and Bradley Grobler), the second of which was a deflected effort which appeared to be scored from an offside position.

"It’s more than controversial, it’s like a lottery," Ertugral said after the match.

"The officials need to have more of an angle when they run. Sorry guys, this is not a goal, this is clear offside.

"I think it has to be reviewed properly because we are working very hard with this team to be there where we want to be; a lot of people have enjoyed the kind of football we are playing this season, but...sorry guys, this is a clear offside."

Aces striker Collins Mbesuma was also not spared the Turkish coach's wrath.

"The game is already over after 20 minutes, half-an-hour. I don’t know how many goal chances we missed. Collins - sitters, 2-0 and the game is over and we close the line," he said.
