Amakhosi are without a head coach having parted ways with Stuart Baxter last week, and a number of coaches have already been linked with them.

Ertugral, though, said he’s been getting a lot of questions on whether or not he’s going to take the Chiefs job, but he’s confirmed that he’s NOT interested.

Ertugral revealed he’s not in South Africa to look for a job but to rest, adding that he’s recharging his batteries for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The veteran mentor had two spells with Chiefs, and his first spell was more successful as he delivered the Mandela Cup among other trophies to Naturena in 2001.

Ertugral’s second spell came between 2007 and 2009 where he won the 2008 MTN8 trophy before being sacked by Chiefs in 2009.

The 62-year-old coached Chiefs, Ajax Cape Town, Orlando Pirates and Golden Arrows among other teams in South Africa.

“Obviously, everybody talks about, ‘are you gonna go take that job?’,” said Ertugral to iDiski Times.

“I’m not interested. I must clarify that over and over again. I am not interested to take any job at the moment.

“The World Cup is coming, there are other opportunities now at the moment, national teams have asked. I have been with the Turkish national team, Turkish Premier League teams were there, I had still my former club from the Emirates asking, it’s not about not getting possibilities.

“I mean I’ve been coaching on three continents, only big clubs mostly, I did of course coach smaller clubs in South Africa [sometimes for the wrong reasons].

“But in the end, it’s just been now two-and-a-half years with the Turkish side and I’ve just been tired and you need to recharge your batteries.”
