Top Class: Parker Obtains Tertiary Qualification

Not only is Bernard Parker a gifted footballer, he is intelligent too. The Kaizer Chiefs veteran joined a host of PSL stars who obtained a tertiary qualification.

The 33-year-old star had tongues wagging when his wife Wendy revealed that ‘Die Hond’ had graduated top of his class with a sports management diploma from Boston College.

Being in the twilight of his career, the 33-year-old has started planning for life after football, though he still delivers the goods for Amakhosi on the field.

It was a family affair for the former FC Twente man as his wife and children were in attendance to support their father, who looked dashing in a grey suit.

Parker joins the likes of Percy Tau, Tefu Mashamaite and Sboniso Gaxa amongst others in obtaining tertiary qualification.

Scroll through the gallery above for images of Parkers’s graduation.

Do you think more footballers should start pursuing tertiary qualifications?
