Gor coach Kerr in trouble over FKF president remarks
The Football Kenya Federation (FKF) is demanding answers from Gor Mahia over remarks by the club coach Dylan Kerr in the wake of the team’s elimination from the FKF SportPesa Shield.
Coach Kerr has been put to task over the post-match comments following his team’s 4-2 loss on post-match penalties to Kariobangi Sharks in the tournament’s quarter final on Sunday in Machakos.
Nairobi News understands FKF has officially written to the club demanding an explanation over Kerr’s comments and especially where he mentioned the Federation president Nick Mwendwa.
“He will have to explain what he meant, otherwise it will not be business as usual for him,” a source explained.
After the match, Kerr took to his official Twitter page and stated – without elaborating – that FKF president Nick Mwendwa, who owns Kariobangi Sharks, ‘knew what he was doing’.
Congratulations to Sharks they were the better side today I can, however bad we played be so proud how they gave everything even though it wasn’t the best today. Thank you to the K’Ogalo family who supported us today pole that we lost. FKF president new what he was doing

Kerr has enjoyed a successful stint at Gor Mahia thus far, he has led the team to a consecutive league title as well as a spot in the group stage of the Caf Confederation Cup.
But the loss to Kariobangi Sharks, coming just a week after Gor Mahia clinched the 2018 league title, extinguished the club’s hopes of sealing a league and cup double.
