Chiefs Striker Urges Togetherness After Another Cup Blow
Bernard Parker wants Kaizer Chiefs players and fans to stand together as one after yet another disappointing cup campaign, saying that ‘together we will become better’.
Parker played 65 minutes for the Amakhosi as they were dumped out of the Telkom Knockout on Saturday thanks to Bidvest Wits and James Keene, the man who scored the winner, meaning that they now have only the Absa Premiership and Nedbank Cup left to play for.
Since winning the league in 2014/15, Chiefs haven’t managed to add a single piece of silverware to their trophy cabinet, but Parker has urged fans to keep backing them as they go in search of success going forward.
Reflecting on the loss, the 31-year-old told the club’s official website, “That only reiterates the cause to be ‘One Team, One Family’. It’s about encouraging and motivating each other. To clap each other’s back and to support as well as show love for each other.
“We, as players, clearly understand what we want to achieve during this whole campaign. We know that. It’s about togetherness – as players, with the office staff and, above all, with our supporters. We are one Family, forming a strong unit. Together we will become better and will achieve.”
Chiefs’ next chance to redeem themselves is on Wednesday evening when they take on AmaZulu.
