Leopards boss wants Baxter to take notice

Black Leopards should be playing so well for Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter to stand up and take notice, according to new man at the helm Dylan Kerr.

Kerr has been appointed as Joel Masutha’s replacement and will be hoping to get a work permit before Lidoda Duvha’s Absa Premiership match against Bidvest Wits on December 1.

Leopards explain Kerr appointment

Kerr watched his Leopards players in a friendly match against Polokwane City earlier this week and was impressed with what he saw, and asked himself why Lidoda Duvha are struggling at the wrong end of the table.

He’d love to see Lidoda Duvha players in the national team going forward. His short-term goal, of course, is to ensure that they move up the table, as they currently sit in 13th spot.

Speaking to media in Polokwane, Kerr said: “It’s a massive challenge, whichever club you go to. Going to Kenya at Gor Mahia, the biggest club there, they wanted to be even bigger. So going to a top team like Gor Mahia came with lots of good things, but lots of problems. I look at them [Leopards] and ask them why are Polokwane fourth and you are third from bottom?

“They played very well today, but obviously they are trying to impress me and impress the chairman. So it’s a big challenge, it’s not going to be easy. I’ve got no expectations. I’m not going to finish top, I don’t want to get relegated, but I want these players to see where their lives, where their careers, and where their futures are if they are doing well.

“They are back in the PSL and that’s where you get noticed. Stuart Baxter should come and watch Black Leopards. I asked them ‘why is nobody in the national team?’ Stuart Baxter is not going to come to Polokwane to watch a third-bottom team. He’ll come watch a team that’s third from top. So it’s down to the players.”
