Legend: Chiefs Coach Should Get Involved In Parker/Nurkovic Incident

Advice has been offered to Kaizer Chiefs on how to deal with the incident involving veteran attacker Bernard Parker and Serbian striker Samir Nurkovic during the team’s most recent match.

In Amakhosi’s disappointing 1-1 draw against Swallows on Wednesday, tempers flared as television replays showed Parker appearing to be using unacceptable words in what seemed to be an argument with Nurkovic.

At the time of the incident, the match was in the final seconds of referee's added time, with the scoreboard reading 1-1.

The Soweto giants are struggling to confirm their place in the top eight on the DStv Premiership log with three matches remaining.

Former Chiefs defender Peter Matshitse has advised that the club’s head coach Gavin Hunt should sit both players down to sort out the matter before their CAF Champions League clash this weekend against Tanzania giants Simba SC.

“Those things happen in football but something like what happened there depends on an individual on how he takes it. But we don’t know for sure what really went on there and I can say it’s all about speculation at this stage. People are saying what they are saying based on reading the lips and so on without knowing what really happened. We can’t say for sure who said what. Take for example that Zinedine Zidane incident when he headbutted an opponent (Marco Materazzi) during a (2006) World Cup match, and that’s why I say these things happen in the game,” said Matshitse, speaking to the Siya crew.

“There were a lot of speculation and conflicting reports on what the guy might have said to Zidane and all of that. Some people were saying that he said something about Zidane’s sister while others believed that it was a racial issue. Players react differently to certain situations and they are different in their tampers. Some players refer voicing out their opinions right there on the field as things happen while others choose to wait until the interval to discuss matters. What we should also understand is that emotions (are) high during a game and some players end up saying things that they never intended to say because of the tempo of the game. The right way to go about the whole (Parker and Nurkovic) incident would be for the coach, as the players were selected by him and playing for him, to sort things out. The coach must find out what happened and try to sort things out. From there, the players can shake hands and move on,” the former centre-back added.
