New Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral is keen to bring fitness trainer Elsa Storm with him to the Orlando giants. 

Ertugral has previously worked with Storm at both Kaizer Chiefs and Mpumalanga Black Aces, while the Bucs are looking to make a host of changes to their backroom staff following a disappointing season last term.

Meanwhile, a source close to the Bucs camp has revealed the new coach has already identified his prospective technical team, which reportedly includes a former Pirates player among its ranks.

Pirates released a statement on their website on Tuesday to confirm Ertugral’s arrival. The Turkish mentor will take over from Eric Tinkler, who managed just a single season at the head of Bucs.

‘The club is still trying to solve other technical team issues but the chairman still wants to keep Tinkler in the club but in another position,’ the source told KickOff.

‘Muhsin has submitted the names of people he wants to work with and the club will make further announcements when the club returns back for pre-season training.’

Ertugral has signed a three-year contract with the Buccaneers having led Aces to fourth in the Premiership this term.
