You can’t write Chiefs off – Kerr


The last time Dylan Kerr came up against Kaizer Chiefs in a league match, he spoiled what could have been the biggest party for ‘Amakhosi’ since 2015.

Kerr who was in charge of Baroka in the previous season played to a 1-1 draw against Chiefs who needed maximum points to win their first League title in five years.

The Leopards mentor, who is yet to lose an official match against Chiefs since his arrival in South Africa in 2018, will once again face the club at FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.

Chiefs are winless in their last three league matches and currently sit at the bottom four of the DStv Premiership log, but Kerr has warned against underestimating his opponents.

“Only a fool writes Chiefs off,” Kerr tells FARPost.

Leopards have had a 14-day break without playing a competitive match, and the 53-year-old says the time allowed them to work on what they need to improve.

“Extremely, but what I see in training needs to be taken into games, the passion, the energy and the effort to do the right things in attack has to be shown in games.

“The last time (against Chiefs), I had a go at the players, I kicked out everyone from that dressing room and it was only me and the players and told them the truth, I hope I don’t have to repeat that tonight,” says Kerr.

Leopards are second from bottom with three points from five matches.
