Cape Town - New Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral has revealed the heart-to-heart talk he had with the club's chairman, Irvin Khoza.

Ertugral was appointed Pirates coach last week to replace Eric Tinkler, who has since been hired by Mpumalanga Black Aces.

The Turk has been in the country for more than a decade and has also coached Kaizer Chiefs, Ajax Cape Town and Golden Arrows.

"When the President (Khoza) and I met, we spoke generally about the state of South African football, the youth, the PSL... general football issues; about his vision for football, we spoke a lot," Ertugral told Soccer Laduma.

"I don't want to go into too much detail right now, but I understand the expectations of this club, and all that is expected of the coach and the players.

"I mean, I have been in South Africa for a long time now. I know the people, the culture, the passion, the desire.

"The President didn't have to tell me how important the club is to the people of South Africa, or even the history of the club."
