Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral and Edwin Gyimah was seen arguing at the Cape Town International Airport, according to EWN Sport.

The Buccaneers were lucky to secure a 2-1 victory over Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday evening following a two minute brace from Tendai Ndoro.

Gyimah, who started the fixture, was replaced by Thembela Sikhakhane at the start of the second-half as the Zimbabwean picked up a yellow card in the first stanza.

However, things were not all smiles and high spirits at the airport ahead of their flight to Johannesburg.

A video surfaced of the police and Buccaneers players holding Gyimah back while Ertugral fled the scene.

It is said Gyimah wanted to further confront the Pirates coach ahead of their flight but the players tried to calm the defender down.

Pirates have made no comment on the matter.

The Parktown club will face Cape Town City FC in their next Absa Premiership assignment on Tuesday, September 20.
