Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral says he’s confident that the former Ajax Cape Town duo Abbubaker Mobara and Riyaad Norodien will prosper at The Buccaneers.
"These boys are very bright talents and that's exactly why I acquired their services,” he told KickOff.com. "They’re young, exciting and have lots of pace, and that’s what the team needs.
"Of course, they have a lot to learn but I'm confident that Mobara and Norodien will prosper with Pirates."
The Turkish-born tactician adds he is looking forward to his first official match in charge of Pirates, the Carling Black Label Cup against Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.
"It's a very unique competition and you won't find it in any other part of the world. It’s a fantastic football event for both player and spectator.
"It's a game that will definitely pose a nice challenge for the team, however, I don't think that our season rests on this.
"It will show what we have and what we don't have. But like I said, our season doesn't depend on what happens in the game, win or lose," Ertugral concludes.
