Bernard Parker, despite turning 33 earlier this year, has played in all nine of the Glamour Boys’ games so far this season, donning the captain’s armband and starting every Absa Premiership game as the club marched to the top of the table.

His injury against Cape Town City over the weekend may mean that he faces a spell on the sidelines, but a minor plus to the situation may be that it allows him some more time to bury his nose into a book.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Parker revealed that he is currently studying for his Higher Certificate in Sports Marketing Management as he plans for life after football, with the attacker considering what lies ahead.

On the topic of his studies, the Amakhosi stalwart said, “It is going well, and I am enjoying myself… The good thing about it is that I am studying part-time. I do make sure I make time for books in between family and football, and it is important to maintain the balance in all aspects of life. Education is key. If you are not keen to study careers outside of sports, then make yourself wiser within the many careers relating to sport.”

Meanwhile, ‘Die Hond’ also had a message for the 2019 examination candidates, saying, “You have come a long way to get so far. Be proud of yourself, trust the process and enjoy the journey… Make the best of it and good luck to the class of 2019.”

Ernst Middendorp and his technical team are waiting to hear the extent of Parker’s injury after he was stretchered off in the first half of their Telkom Knockout victory over City on Saturday.
