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.
