Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr: This is why I love walking in Nairobi

Goal Kenya.
The statement by the Briton coach comes just hours after he took time to wish Kenya's Harambee Stars good luck against Ethiopia

Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr is keeping himself busy after a successful season with K’Ogalo, by sampling the various suburbs in Nairobi.

The Briton, who seems to have acquired the Kenyan culture of trekking for long distances, on Saturday took time to sample Dagoreti Corner, a highly populated estate known for producing some of Kenya's best football talents like Dennis Oliech.

Kerr, who watched a local game in Dagoreti, took time to explain why he like walking on the streets of Nairobi.

“This is why I love walking because I find football at Nairobi city council training camp in Dagoretti corner,” Kerr posted on his Twitter account.

Early in September, Kerr claimed that he walked to and from training. On Saturday, Kerr asked Kenya not to blow the chance they have to reach the 2019 Afcon finals set for Cameroon.

Harambee Stars will face Ethiopia for the second time in four days knowing that a win will improve their chances of making it to finals since 2004.

“Don’t blow it…the hard work in Ethiopia to get that point away is history, now make a future for the good of Kenyan football and for the Kenyan people by winning at home,” Kerr told Goal in an exclusive interview.

“The team have given themselves the best chance of qualifying for the Afcon finals and their focus must be to keep a clean sheet, no goals conceded and try finish the job. I pray not only for my players but the whole squad to see the big prize awaiting them and to make Kenyan football very proud again.”

Gor Mahia will represent the country in Caf Champions League next season.
