Parker Plans For Future With Qualification

Another Kaizer Chiefs player has secured a qualification, as he plans for life after football.

Recently it was confirmed that Amakhosi goalkeeper Brylon Petersen had obtained his BSc Engineering degree with Wits University, and now veteran striker Bernard Parker has joined in by getting a qualification of his own.

The 34-year-old has obtained a higher certificate in marketing with a specialization in sport from Boston City Campus, a clear sign that the former Benoni Premier United forward is planning for life after football.

It remains to be seen where his qualification takes him and if Chiefs will be an option.

Amakhosi have vested time and money into their marketing department, and it has become an important division to the club. It is headed by Jessica Motaung, and it is believed that Parker has a good working relationship with her.

There has been no talk of Parker staying on at Naturena once he hangs up his boots, though it could be an appointment that makes sense for both parties.

Parker, whose contract with Amakhosi is set to expire in June, returned to the Amakhosi starting line-up against SuperSport United over the weekend, as the sides played to a 1-1 draw at FNB Stadium.
