JOHANNESBURG - Mpumalanga Black Aces today unveiled Mushin Ertugral as their new head coach on a two-year deal, following media speculation, the club said in statement.

We have just signed the best coach in Africa. Confident that Aces will move to new heights. "Glory to God"

On Monday, Ertugral revealed that he has been on the shortlist of coaches for the club after Clive Barker's exit in March.

Ertugral, who has not coached a club since he left Ajax last year to deal with his family business in Turkey, says he was enticed to Aces after hearing the vision of the club and its youth policy.

"Aces was formed in 1937 and is one of the real traditional big clubs in South Africa. The brand is well established and with their links to Manchester City coupled with 66 youth teams, the club is a sleeping giant and it is a privilege for me to have been appointed."
