Parker Thanks Teammates

Bernard Parker was quick to thank his teammates for his ‘Man of the Match’ award after netting a brace in Kaizer Chiefs 4-1 over Polokwane City on Wednesday night.

The Chiefs striker netted his fifth and sixth goal of the league season in an impressive win at the FNB stadium, but Parker was quick to praise his side’s performance on the night and suggested they could have scored more goals.

“Thank you to my teammates for supplying me upfront,” said Parker after the match.

“This was a good game for us, especially to work on our game, to make sure we polish the stuff we do well and also to work on what we have been lacking.

“But we should have kept on going, we should have scored more.

“I’m sure in the upcoming games if we can keep the same mentality, the same spirit, we will have more victories down the line.”

Parker also provided one assist on the night for Eric Mathoho’s opening goal with a clever pass that deceived the Polokwane defence, and he explained that is part of his job.

“I am not an out-and-out striker,” added Parker.

“I try help the team as much as possible when we build-up, when we have to go through a team such as Polokwane City who is sitting back in defence, and I work hard to get in those spaces. I also work hard to put my teammates in good scoring positions.

“I hope the attacking department can do much better in the future.”
