Indications are that the Soweto based side Swallows have fired Dylan Kerr following the 4-0 drubbing against Golden Arrows at the weekend.

The writing was on the wall, and Kerr, to some degree, Kerr looked like a defeated man who was resigned to being shown the exit door.

Indications are that Swallows have fired Dylan Kerr following the 4-0 drubbing against Golden Arrows at the weekend.

During the post-match interview with the media in Durban, Kerr received a phone call from the Swallows chairman David Mogashoa requesting a meeting with him on Monday.

Swallows are without a win in their last three DStv Premiership encounters, with two defeats and a draw.

With that said, FARPost also has it on good authority that Kerr had a meeting with Mogashoa, where the Swallows’ poor form was on the agenda.

And it seems the club has heeded the frustrated supporter’s calls to axe Kerr, who admitted that losing 4-0 is unaccepted.

The humiliation did not sit well with the Birds’ travelling fans as they expressed anger towards the coach.

However, Kerr said he takes full responsibility for Swallows’ below-part performances as the Soweto side is languishing in 14th place on the log standings with two wins, two draws and four losses.


“I’ve got a meeting with him [Mogashoa] on Monday. He says we are losing” Kerr told the media.

“Listen, after that result; I do not know what the chairman is thinking.

“I have to take responsibility, which I will; if the chairman feels it is time for change, which is his decision, I can’t do anything about it.

“I don’t think we played badly; we just couldn’t create enough chances; the boys showed that they wanted to play, but it was not meant to be,” he added.

It was thought that Kerr would revive Swallows’ fortunes after taking over from Brandon Truter. But his arrival has bought more misery for the Swallows’ faithful.

With the FIFA international break coming up, Kerr said that he wants to work on his defence.

He feels Swallows are conceding plenty of silly goals and committing many mistakes at the back.

But with the coach being summoned to the Mogashoa’s office today [Monday], the Arrows game could have been his last as Swallows coach.

“The priority is not to concede, we have conceded fourteen goals already, and thirteen of them was for our own doing,” he said.

“We also need to create more chances; we just need to work on our defence. We are conceding a lot; we keep making lots of mistakes.”
