Dylan Kerr Upset at Contributing to The Dismissals of Tinkler & Middendorp! He is not proud of appearingly being at the end of two high profile dismissals.
This result was the last straw for the Maritzburg board as they quickly dismissed of Eric Tinkler after the defeat. It was the club’s 4th defeat in a row.
Kerr was also at the helm of Baroka at the back end of last season. Their draw with Kaizer Chiefs denied Amakhosi the PSL title on the last day of the season.
Once again, this was a result that saw Ernst Middendorp relieved of his duties at the club.
“When you think of it‚ my last game for Baroka was against Kaizer Chiefs and it cost Ernst Middendorp his job. My first game back with Black Leopards cost Eric Tinkler his job‚” Kerr said to the media.
“It is something that I am not proud of‚ it is a shame for Eric (Tinkler) because I thought he did a great job prior to the bubble.
“After [last season’s] bubble‚ he hit a slump but at the same time lost a lot of good players. There were new players coming to the team‚ so it’s difficult.
“Everything shouldn’t be a quick fix.
“You have to get time at the club to put things right, but it doesn’t happen in some cases.”
Bloemfontein Celtic claimed their first win of the season in last night’s victory over Black Leopards.
Speaking ahead of the game, Kerr exclaimed that he did not want the same fate of Tinkler and Middendorp to repeat itself on Celtic coach John Maduka.
“It is always tough visiting Bloemfontein but maybe our advantage will be the fact that they have the CAF Confederation fixture at the weekend.
“I have a lot of respect for the Celtic guys who took over when their coach (Lehlohonolo Seema) went to Chippa United last season. They have qualified for two cup finals and they have the Confederations Cup now‚ that is very good by any standards.” Kerr concluded.
