Why coach Dylan Kerr would like Gor Mahia coronation moved to Kisumu

Gor Mahia will be the home team and they can still make the request to KPL to move the match to Kisumu

Dylan Kerr wants Gor Mahia official coronation ceremony to be moved from Machakos to Kisumu.

K’Ogalo are set to be crowned the Kenyan champions for the 17th time after their home game against Mathare United on September 29 in Machakos.

But a smitten Kerr, who lifted his maiden KPL title with the same side in 2017, wishes that the event could be moved to Kisumu, considered a second 'home’ of Gor Mahia to appreciate the fans for their support throughout the season.

“The club’s majority of fans, since I have been at Gor Mahia, have come out in force in Kisumu," Kerr told Goal in an interview.

"So as a football fan, this is where it should be held to thank them for the amazing support, but again that is in no way being disrespectful to all our fans all over Kenya.”

Gor Mahia will be the home team and they can still make the request to KPL to move the match to Kisumu. Kisumu has been a good hunting ground for K’Ogalo, who won all their games at Moi Stadium this season.

“And when we have games outside of Kisumu, many of our fans from Kisumu travel to support us be it Nairobi, Nakuru, Narok or even Machakos."

Kerr has an undeniably special relationship with Gor Mahia fans in his one and a half years stay with the record Kenyan champions.
