Why Kerr accepted Swallows offer


Newly-appointed Swallows FC head coach Dylan Kerr has revealed the reasons behind his decision to join the ambitious DStv Premiership outfit.

The Dube Birds have struggled so far this season and are currently rock bottom in the league standings with just eight points from 12 matches.

Kerr has been now tasked with turning around the Soweto giants who will be aiming to move clear from the relegation zone after an impressive campaign last season.

"I'm in awe, it's so unexpected," Kerr tells KickOff.Com.

"The reason I joined the club is that they have ambitious owners. But I know positions don't lie. We're bottom with a massive but very good squad.

"They're still new to the PSL so they're making mistakes.

"They are growing and learning and that takes stability."

"They're still growing as a club. Swallows I hope now can replicate how they used to play back in those early days, with flair, passion and eagerness to create and score goals."

Swallows next face Maritzburg United in a league clash at Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
