Leopards respond to Kerr accusations

Premiership

Black Leopards have responded to rumours that Dylan Kerr was released because he could not work with Lehlohonolo Seema as his assistant.

Kerr, who returned to Venda last year November, struggled to help Lidoda Duvha move out of the relegation zone and was let go on Monday as the club preferred Seema over him.

Seema was quickly roped in after he was sacked at Chippa United in December.

According to a source, Kelt fell threatened by the presence of a reputable coach like Seema on his technical team as that would have created problems when it comes to decision-making.

Coincidentally, Kerr parted ways with his former club Baroka FC under similar circumstances.

"You see, we just don't want someone to think he's everything to the team. No one is invincible you know. We work together," Baroka chairman Khurishi Mphahlele told KickOff.com back in October.

Contacted for comment, Leopards spokesman Berry Ramunenyiwa could neither deny nor agree with accusations that the coach was relieved of his duties due to not seeing eye to eye with Seema.

"As we mentioned, there's nothing more to say other than what we have already said. That was our agreement with him. We are not denying that [the rumours], but at the same time we also don't agree."
