Dylan Kerr Proud Of What He Did At Black Leopards! The Englishman became the second casualty at Black Leopards this season.
His sacking was confirmed by Black Leopards on Sunday midnight.
“Black Leopards FC and their head coach Dylan Kerr have reached an agreement to part ways amicably,” the Black Leopards statement read.
“Assistant coaches Morgan Shivambu and Lehlohonolo Seema, together with goalkeeper coach Sam Banda, will be responsible for the team in the meantime.” They concluded.
Black Leopards are currently 15th on the table. They have 12 points from 13 games and they have a game in hand on their opponents.
They suffered a heavy home defeat at the hands of Chippa United on Saturday. Dan Malesela’s men ran out convincing 3-0 winners at the Thoyandou Stadium.
This is despite beating Orlando Pirates 2-0 the previous weekend.
“You know when you are doing a bad thing in football is when you get abuse from football supporters. Since waking up at 5am this morning I have had nothing but great messages from all the Black Leopards supporters,” Dylan Kerr told FARPost.
“But this is football, you make decisions and you got to stand by them. I am proud of what I have done at Black Leopards, like I have been proud at Baroka and at Black Leopards previously. I know the issues and I know the problems but I have dealt with them in a positive way and the supporters appreciate that.
“I appreciate the supporters more so thank you very much for your well wishes and thank you very much for the support and forever ‘Lidoda Duvha’.
“Probably the biggest disappointment is not being able to stand with the fans in the Zamalek stand, obviously with TTM playing in Thohoyandou, I would have been able to watch the game. But unfortunately with no crowd being allowed at the stadium it is strange at Thohoyandou Stadium when there are no fans,” he said.
“Even though you got a memory of what it was like last year, this year had not been the same and it does affect the team. The team has got energy from supporters and the supporters have energy from the team. Unfortunately it doesn’t end happily but from the messages you get from the supporters, I know what they think of me, I know they believe in me and that’s always the best thing in football,” Dylan Kerr added.
He also confirmed that he will be in the country for an extended and undisclosed period. Dylan Kerr Proud Of What He Did At Black Leopards!
