Cape Town - New Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral admits that the club management has given him every tool necessary to bring success to the Buccaneers.

Ertugral officially began his tenure this week at Pirates after the players returned from their post-season break.

The experienced Turkish tactician was appointed to replace Eric Tinkler, who failed to bring silverware after 18 months in charge.

"You are as strong as your supportive team, this is not a one man show," Ertugral told the club's official website.

"This is a professional outfit, I found that everything is already in place at Pirates because I am surrounded by good people and we will archive a lot as a team.

"We also have capable and qualified staff in the rehabilitation department and actually the entire support staff which is inclusive of the doctors, physiotherapists, all the scientists and Elsa Storm who will be a great addition.

"It is an honour for me to be part of this institution and they (the supporters) can be comforted by the fact that I come here with the intention to do all that is in my powers to uphold the name of Orlando Pirates and bring the necessary success that is associated with it.

"But obviously, all this can be achieved with everyone pulling in the same direction. With your support, nothing will be impossible."
