The Pirates striker scored a hat-trick in the Buccaneers opening match against Golden Arrows on Wednesday night.
“You must ask Tendai what I told him at half-time,” revealed Ertugral.
“He didn’t move, let me say, to our pattern that we had trained and he had his reasons when we had that talk at half-time. But it wasn’t just short, I actually spoke to him about what is expected of him in that position and how to play against Golden Arrows.
“He did it perfectly in the second half and you could see by his three goals.”
“He’s a player that needs special attention; he’s a star; he’s a special player,” he added. “These types of players need to be [treated differently].
“You can’t treat every player the same way, whoever says that is a mess. Every human being is different, so we as coaches – that’s my job – need to look into their needs.
“And I’m getting used to Tendai and he’s getting used to me, I think you would have found that he’s a great, great player.”
