Following the vote of confidence by club Chairman Khurishi Mphahlele that his future is secured beyond the current PSL season, coach Dylan Kerr still insists it all depends on his players.
Just like he did at neighbours Black Leopards last season, Kerr has quickly won the hearts of many ‘Bakgaga’ faithfuls just a few months since he joined the club.
But Mphahlele who is known to be a hard-to-please boss told the media last week that the former Leeds United player has done enough to secure his future for next season.
When asked what he made of his Chairman’s comments, Kerr did not want to get carried away.
“That’s up to my players you know the players are the ones who will dictate my future,” Kerr told FARPost
“They also dictate their own future, I have always said to them since day one that there is no bigger league in Africa than the PSL as far as I am concerned and its up to the players to keep me in this position,” he said.
“It’s up to them (players) to keep the Chairman, supporters in his area and his Province happy.
“He is very passionate about his club and he is going out of his way to make things better for the club, he is providing training facilities and he has all the attributes that all Chairmen’s in the Premier League need in a football club,” added the 53-year-old.
Kerr has also applauded the club as well as their main Sponsors Global who partnered with the Rheinland Group and government to donate food parcels within the Bochum community.
“I think it’s fantastic I like the fact that our sponsor mentioned that over the years a lot of people have been supporting his store and it was also time for him to give back and I thought that was fantastic for him to say that. I think it has been well appreciated by the people in this Village (Bochum) so to be part of it is fantastic,” he said.
Since his arrival at Baroka, Kerr has been involved in initiatives like paying homage to the late English footballer Jordan Sinnot who was killed last month.
Over 800 shirts were donated as part of the ex-footballers memory with the likes of Steven Gerald, Jordan Henderson and many top clubs getting involved.
