Gor Mahia gaffer Dylan Kerr boasted that he is the best coach in East Africa after his side successfully defended the SportPesa Super Cup.
This was after the Kenyan champions secured a convincing 2-0 win over Tanzanian giants Simba SC in the tournament final at the Afraha Stadium, in Nakuru in Sunday.
Goals on either side of halftime from the Rwandese duo of Meddie Kagere and Jacques Tuyisenge saw K’Ogalo put their opponents to the sword in a packed final.
According to Rwandese Association Football Federation website, Gor will now travel to England to face top-flight side Everton FC at their Goodison Park home next month.
Gor also walked away with Sh3 million for their exploits, while runners up Simba went home with Sh 1million.
Gor coach Dylan Kerry could not hide his joy of beating Simba. It was a sweet revenge for the Englishman after he was bundled out of the club in a huff.
“I have now proved that I am the best coach in the region and Simba should now respect my coaching tactics as I am heading to Goodison Park in England, while they will be at home in Dar es Salaam," said a delighted Kerr, who was dismissed from Simba after only six months at the helm.
Simba assistant coach Masoud Juma conceded defeat and congratulated Gor for the victory saying his charges were overwhelmed by their opponents’ vast experience.
"I fielded a relatively new and young side. I will now develop the side into a formidable team and I am sure we shall soon roar to the top of the regional football apex and revenge against Gor in the Kagame Cup next month,” said Masoud.
