Soccer-Laduma will also be running user polls to gauge the popularity of the players profiled every week.
Kaizer Chiefs profile:
Name: Bernard Parker
Team: Kaizer Chiefs
CBL 2012: Parker played for 86 minutes.
2012/2013 PSL Stats: Appearances – 27 , Goals – 12
Bernard Parker lead the top goal-scorers leader board for almost the entire season, but narrowly lost out to Moroka Swallows’ Katlego Mashego.
Parker’s 12 goals in the Absa Premiership proved that he is one of the most lethal strikers in Africa and is certainly one of the first names on the team sheet for both, club and country.
The former FC Twente man knows what it takes to be a top performer and with his speed and skill he has tormented opposing defenders with relative ease.
Parker appears to be a clear favourite to start up front with over 170 000 votes already.
