Kerr expressed deep displeasure with the way Ben Cherifa took his sweet time to take goal kicks and called out the referee for not taking action against his dissent. “It is something that I am not happy with; especially their goalkeeper who on multiple occasions took a lot of time to take a goal kick and the referee was just there,” Kerr went on. The Gor gaffer lauded his team’s effort despite the challenges they faced in the day and commended them for putting up a gallant fight against the Tunisian outfit. "However, I am happy with the way my players played, it was not the best of preparations considering the fact that we spent seven hours in the jam," He said.
