Mr Dylan Kerr.
Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila’s head coach, Mr Dylan Kerr, has dismissed the rumour that he has parted ways with the club as baseless and unfounded. Mr Kerr was responding to reports by some of the national radio stations over the past weekend. According to the reports, Mr Kerr had refused to sign a job contract that Vhadau Vha Damani had offered him.
Speaking to Limpopo Mirror from his hotel room in Polokwane, Mr Kerr said that his relationship with the club was healthy. According to him, he will not lose his focus to save the team from possible relegation because of people who were going all out in trying to dent his image. He reiterated the fact that his primary objective was to save the team from relegation.
Asked when last he had been at the team’s training session, the former Black Leopards and Baroka FC head coach told Limpopo Mirror on Monday afternoon that he was preparing to go to the team’s training camp. He stated that the people who were behind the false story wanted to destabilize the club. He further revealed that his contract with TTM will expire at the end of the current season.
Asked why he did not sit on the team’s technical bench ever since he joined the club about three months ago, the 53-year-old mentor stated that nothing strange should be read into his shouting instructions to the players from the grandstand. According to him, giving the players instructions from the grandstand was in line with his agreement with his employers.
Mr Kerr replaced Mr Joel Masutha, whose employment contract with TTM was terminated after Dr Abraham Sello bought the club’s franchise from Mr Masala Mulaudzi about three months ago. TTM’s performance improved dramatically after the club’s ownership changed from Mr Mulaudzi to Dr Sello. The team secured a place in the semi-final stage of the Nedbank Cup competition.
