Cape Town – Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral wants his players to apologise to ‘The Ghost’ for their underwhelming performance against Cape Town City FC.

The Buccaneers were held to a goalless draw, but could easily have won the Absa Premiership encounter which was played at the Orlando Stadium on Tuesday.

In his post-match interview with SuperSport, Ertugral was annoyed with the display of his charges and said that his players need to learn how to play under instruction.

"I think the fans, who came in numbers tonight, need an apology," Ertugral said.

"The decisions in the last third, the last pass, the last cross, the last move, when to go, when to stay; we're working on it every day.  

"There's a long-long way to go. Some of the players need to understand how to play to instructions.

"I feel sorry about the expectations of the fans that we could not fulfill."
