Cape Town - Black Leopards coach Dylan Kerr believes the foul language directed at him by an unnamed player after Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Maritzburg United was uncalled for.
It appears there could be increasing unrest in Leopards' dressing room and the club are being drawn back into a relegation dog-fight as a result.
During the defeat to the Team of Choice, an argument erupted among his players when goalkeeper King Ndlovu insisted he wanted to take an attacking free-kick in the closing stages.
It lead to farcical scenes on the pitch although the eventual set-piece came to nothing as the away side collected a massive three points in their own battle for survival.
Speaking about the events on Saturday, Kerr told reporters: "He had no right to want to take a free-kick as a goalkeeper, even in training he doesn't practice them.
"The other players were completely right to remove him, Ndlovu was out of line.
"I understand players are frustrated and want to stay in the PSL but what I saw today was disappointing. I don't mind them angry but saying (f*** off) to me is not good at all.
"Whether I'm wrong or right, I'm still their boss. Fortunately there were no TV cameras because it would've been more embarrassing for this club."
Lidoda Duvha are in 14th spot and have three matches left against Mamelodi Sundowns, AmaZulu and Cape Town City to secure their PSL status.
