Mphahlele clears the air on Kerr comments


Following the now-infamous post-match television interview by Baroka Coach Dylan Kerr in which he suggested that there are people within the club who interfere with his job, ‘Bakgaga’ chairman Khurishi Mphahlele says the matter has been ironed out and the club understands emotions got the better out of the coach.

After their 1-0 win against Mamelodi Sundowns at the bio-bubble, Kerr told SuperSport TV that: “I know my job.  I know my job because I have studied it for 30 odd years as a player and a coach and if people leave me alone to do my job‚ I’ll make this club a success. Unfortunately‚ I should be happy with this result but inside I’m really‚ really angry,” said Kerr.

But Mphahlele has downplayed the comments.

“Football is a sport of emotions, he (Dylan Kerr) wouldn’t say that when he is not emotional,” Mphahlele told FARPost.

“Our top coach in the country Pitso (Mosimane), when he loses or wins a match he is emotional. He can say something that he regrets tomorrow and our coach is regretting what he said. He apologised to the team and we accept his apology,” he said.

Kerr is expected to continue as head coach of the side for the 2020-21 Premier Division season.
