Dylan Kerr, Baroka’s first choice to take over as their new head coach, will be flying in from the United States of America to discuss terms with Bakgaga in the new year.
Kerr impressed during his time with Black Leopards – his first head coaching job in South Africa – as he successfully steered them to safety last year, however left the club to attend to his mother who was sick at home in the United Kingdom.
Earlier this year his mother sadly passed away, tragically justifying his decision to leave to be by her side, and he is now looking to get back into the game after taking some personal time in the last few months.
The Siya crew reported earlier this week that the Englishman was a front-runner for the post in Limpopo after Baroka decided to part ways with Wedson Nyirenda, and next week he is expected to jet in from the USA where he was celebrating the festive season.
Should the 52-year-old agree terms with the Absa Premiership outfit then he’ll be looking to at least get a few days training in with the team before their first game of the new year against Cape Town City on January 5 as they look to bounce back from a run of four games without victory.
Kerr’s record with Leopards saw them pick up six wins and six draws in his 21 games in charge, losing nine times.
