Dylan Kerr turned down an offer to walk out of the club with over a year still left on his two year contract

Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr has allegedly turned down offers from three different teams that are seeking for his services.

The Englishman, who joined K’Ogalo on July 2017, confirmed his loyalty to the Kenyan champions whom he has some memorable history with after guiding the team to a record 16th Kenyan Premier League title last season.

Kerr, who is undefeated in the domestic front and has lost only once this season, to Esperance of Tunisia, has been on the radar of many clubs, who have been following his splendid performance with the Kenyan champions.

According to Gor Mahia website, Kerr turned down an offer to walk out of the club with over a year still left on his two year contract.

“The agent contacted me with what sounded like a good offer for a coaching job in Angola…same way the South African and Tanzanian clubs contacted me but no.”

“I have a great relationship with my club. Sometimes it’s hard and difficult with some things but what we’re doing is for the better of Kenyan football and for the better of Gor Mahia”, the coach exclusively revealed to the official club’s website.

“Had I done what the three previous coaches at Gor Mahia did – ran away to the best offer, I’d have gone three times in the past two weeks. This is a club with great potential…a club that can be one of the biggest in Africa and if l am offered the chance to guide it, why should l move? Sometimes it’s not about the money but the happiness and what one wants to achieve in his career.”

Kerr has guided the team to the big stage of continental football where Gor Mahia qualified for Caf Confederation Cup Group stage after so many fruitless attempts before.
