ENOUGH was enough for both Maritzburg United and former coach Mushin Ertugral as they parted ways after their Nedbank Cup exit on Sunday. Ertugral’s departure left the door open for Erik Tinkler to ply his trade in the city of choice, having won trophies at both Cape Town City and SuperSport United. United now find themselves at the bottom of the league after 18 games, in which they have registered just one win all season, although Tinkler will be adamant that he can change their fortune around with United within five points of avoiding the relegation zone. In his first interview since taking over, Tinkler said that he was hoping to revive his career at United by taking on what looks like the biggest challenge in the PSL and proving his worth. “I am aware of the challenge and am no stranger to the relegation zone, having played in relegation clubs throughout most of my career. I know what it takes in these situations and hopefully I can bring positive energy in,” said Tinkler. Tinkler added that the gap between themselves and the other teams languishing in the bottom was not that much and he will look to put pressure on the other teams by getting United off to a positive start as they look to take down Bidvest Wits on Friday.
