Black Leopards left-back Pentjie Zulu says the departure of head coach Dylan Kerr is a huge loss to the Limpopo club.
The former Gor Mahia mentor unexpectedly quit after he managed to save Lidoda Duvha from relegation.
Zulu, who had stints at Jomo Cosmos, Bidvest Wits and Chippa United, says Kerr is the only coach who managed to get the best out of him after a long time.
"Hey, it doesn't sit well with me you know," he tells KickOff.com.
"It's not my decision to make but as for me he is a good coach. We were starting to understand him and the football he was making us play. He is a top coach."
Zulu says he clicked with Kerr from the word go, as he fell in love with his style of play from day one.
"For me since he arrived you see, we had just played a game against Polokwane City and he came to me and since then he admired the way I play. He told me to play football the way I know how as I'm good at what I do. He told me not to be afraid of anything. So he gave me a free role. I was my old self again. I was now playing my own football. I don't know who is going to replace him, but any coach that is coming we must adapt to his style of play."
