Kaizer Chiefs was among other top-flight clubs, that returned to training this week after they were given the green light following all the necessary procedures and protocols.
Speaking to Chiefs’ official website, Parker described being back at training as a breath of fresh air, as Amakhosi prepare to get back to their fight for the Absa Premiership title.
“It really feels good to be back at training. This virus caught us all off-guard. I was so used to training at the High Performance Centre at the Village, often working out extra, and never acquired a treadmill at home. Luckily, I have a nice garden, so I worked out in the garden, doing a lot of running and all kinds of other exercises,” he said.
“It’s also great to be with your teammates again, it’s like a breath of fresh air. Of course, we keep (a) distance at this stage. We do a combination of fitness and ball-work. It’s all very much game-related,” Parker went on to say.
The Premier Soccer League is yet to confirm the official date for the resumption of the 2019/20 season, however, the Siya crew reported on Saturday that matches could begin as early as July 19.
