But a Phakaaathi Plus source said Ertugral will in fact fill the position left vacant when Rob Hutting.

“They want him for the technical director role – at least for now. We all know how he likes giving youngsters a chance so this role will benefit the club because he will ensure that deserving youngsters are promoted to the senior team just like he did at Ajax (Cape Town),” said the source.

Ertugral resigned from Ajax last weekend.
