Swallows FC coach Dylan Kerr's immediate working future remains up in the air.

The Maltese-born coach has had to sit out the first three of The Birds' DStv Premiership matches as he wrangles with the Department of Home Affairs for the renewal of his work permit. In that time Swallows lost 1-0 to Orlando Pirates, defeated Cape Town City 3-2 and drew 0-0 with Maritzburg United.

Kerr said to the Daily Sun:

"This is the sixth time I have applied for the work permit. I am not sure why it is taking so long. It is frustrating now. Watching these three games from the stand is difficult.

"I really don't understand what the delay is. Last season I stayed six games waiting for a work permit. I guess I will have to remain patient.

This is one of two headaches the club has to deal with at the start of the season. Later today, its representatives will sit before a Premier Soccer League disciplinary committee.

They will have to explain why there was a delay before their match against the Cityzens last week because of a starting line-up mix-up.
