“The fans’ player selection for Saturday is good. I would have made one change but the selection is actually good,” said the Pirates coach.
“It is a great idea to have a Champion coach. It allows the fans to get closer to their favourite team and players.”
Ertugal, who replaced Eric Tinkler as the head coach of Pirates, further stated that he is impressed with the squad so far, saying he is looking to play much more games to prepare his team for the season.
“We want to play around 10 games before the season begins to prepare the players. With regards to our new players, I’m happy with them. We’ve trimmed done our team, which allows for more tactical work.”
