Cape Town - New Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral says the club should not only be looking to sign big-name players, but also give youth a chance.
Ertugral successfully transitioned a host of budding young stars from the Ajax Cape Town academy into the first team during his time at Ikamva, with Pirates having just announced the signing of two of those players: Abbubaker Mobara and Riyaad Norodien.
The Turk is currently in France, working as part of FIFA's Technical Study Group at Euro 2016, but is looking forward to playing a more active role in the Buccaneers' signings when he returns to South Africa.
"We will have this discussion together and plot a way forward. Hopefully there will be more signings‚ it is important to look at more youth but we must only bring in players that will add quality to the squad," said Ertugral as quoted by The Sowetan.
Ertugral added that he is relishing the challenge of producing both entertaining and winning football.
"I know that it's important to win trophies at Orlando Pirates‚ I think that my record shows that I can do that. But it is also important to produce the right type of football," he added.
"I think with the players that we have at Pirates already and the players that we have brought in‚ of course this is possible.
"I am not worried about what the other teams are doing‚ I can only concentrate on my side and what I can do with this squad. What happens elsewhere is not my concern."
