Black Leopards defender Isaac Masia claims Baroka coach Dylan Kerr’s heart is still with ‘Lidoda Duvha’ as the two Limpopo sides gear up for their Nedbank Cup quarterfinal clash on Saturday at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
Kerr spent six month at Leopards last season and won the hearts of players and die hard supporters after saving them from relegation.
The former Leeds United player is now in charge at ‘Bakgaga’ and will face his former club for the second successive Limpopo Derby match at Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday at 15:00.
“He is someone that we communicate with and I think he loves this club even though he left because of some reasons but his heart is still here with some of the players including me,” Masia told reporters.
“He is someone that always encourage all of the players that guys keep on pushing you can get out of the relegation.
“Coming into the Nedbank I don’t think it’s an open game everyone can go for it, it’s a knockout it’s not a League. We are going there to fight and for us it’s a must win because we have to get a revenge from them,” he said.
Kerr was on the winning side when ‘Bakgaga’ beat Leopards 2-0 in the Absa Premiership match last week Saturday.
