Muhsin Ertuğral (born 15 September 1959 ) is a Turkish football coach.

Playing career[edit]

Ertuğral played for Antalyaspor before leaving his homeland and continuing his career at clubs in Belgium and Germany where he also honed his coaching craft.[1]

Coaching career[edit]

After coaching the DR Congo national football team he took over Kaizer Chiefs FC in 1999. Ertuğral took Ajax Cape Town to ABSA Cup glory with a 2–0 victory against league champions Mamelodi Sundowns on May 26, 2007. That proved to be a successful season for Ajax under Ertuğral as they went on to finish fourth in the league and the only side never to suffer defeat against Sundowns in that season.[2]

On 8 May 2009 the Turkish coach has quit Kaizer Chiefs, but could remain in South Africa, where he is tracked by Ajax Cape Town.[3] On 18 May 2009 the former Kaizer Chiefs' Turkish coach has signed for Ajax Cape Town.[4]

As of 8 October 2009, upon Bülent Uygun's resignation, he agreed to pen a deal with the Turkish Super League underdogs Sivasspor, the contract runs between 30 June 2011.[5] Yiğidos also announced that the assistant coach position will be occupied by former Beşiktaş favorite and South Africa national, Fani Madida.[6]

On 24 April 2013 it was announced that Muhsin Ertuğral would take over as the new Technical Director of Ajax Cape Town F.C.. This decision resulted in the direct resignation of then interim coach Jan Versleijen, who had not been notified of the new hiring. As a result, Muhsin Ertuğral will see the Cape club through until the end of the 2012-13 PSL season.[7] David Nyathi was announced as his assistant coach, who had previously led the Ajax CT under-19 team to the 2013 Metropolitan Premier Cup Championship, where he won the “Coach of the Tournament Award”.[8]
