Amakhosi’s CAF Hopes: “We Need To Reset”
Bernard Parker Wants Kaizer Chiefs To Reach The CAF Confederation Cup
Bernard Parker says that Kaizer Chiefs are going to fight to the death to try and secure a place in the CAF Confederation Cup, admitting that it’s been a tough season.
The 32-year-old has scored three Absa Premiership goals for the Amakhosi this season as they missed out on both the league title and a spot in the CAF Champions League, however he’s not prepared to give up on the campaign just yet.
Chiefs come up against their rivals for a place in the CCC on Saturday, with Maritzburg United knowing that a win would guarantee their place and see the Glamour Boys succumb to a fourth-place finish at best.
Parker is now looking to finish the season on a high so that the team can refresh in the offseason and try to come back stronger in 2018/19.
Speaking to the club’s official website he said, “We are on a mission to finish third, as that will give us a position in the CAF Confederation Cup. We have been knocked hard. We need to reset ourselves mentally, it’s a big challenge as a footballer. We have to be mentally strong and stick together. We want to win the final two matches of the season because we want to finish in a good frame of mind.”
The two teams will lock horns at 15h00 on Saturday afternoon as Fadlu Davids and Patrick Mabedi go toe-to-toe.
