Kerr says Leopards never said “well done”
Former Black Leopards coach Dylan Kerr has poured his heart out since leaving the Absa Premiership club.
Kerr’s shock resignation from Leopards was reported on Futaa last week, but it was before the Briton coach took a moment to do a bit of reflection on his decision.
“I had to decide what I was going to do before I came home and I’ve had a long hard think about it over the last week‚” Kerr told TimesLIVE from Yorkshire.
The 52-year-old’s short stint in South Africa was essentially to save the newly promoted club from relegation, after the previous coach went six games without a win.
Kerr would go on to ensure survival on the final day of the season in a 1-0 win over Cape Town City. "I think what I achieved with the club was amazing," continued Kerr.
Kerr's Black Leopards team last seasson, also known as Lidoda Duvha (the day will come).
"I’ll admit I make a few mistakes along the way but to not even get a “well done” or “congratulations” from management after the end of the season was heartbreaking to me.”
Kerr, who earned legendary status in Kenya with Gor Mahia before moving down to SA, concluded his reflection by revealing he was never offered a contract by Leopards.
“I have an agreement about a four-year contract offer but no contract itself‚” he said.
“To be honest I’m devastated to have made the decision because I had such a good time there. The players were great and I don’t have to tell anybody how amazing the support is,” concluded Kerr.
