Kaizer Chiefs forward Bernard Parker isn’t entirely satisfied despite having reached a milestone of 50 goals for Kaizer Chiefs.

The former FC Twente forward hit the half-century mark in a 1-1 draw against Free State Stars last weekend, but instead of celebrating the achievement, the 31-year-old explained that he is frustrated it took him so long to reach the mark.

“I have achieved something great. It’s a good achievement, although I am not entirely happy because with my standards and quality I would have wanted to have reached this milestone earlier,” Parker told his club’s website.

“I am now in my seventh season at Chiefs. To score 50 goals is great, but it’s not enough, especially when looking at what is the going rate of scoring in Europe, as that’s the top level and that’s where the standard is set.”

The Amakhosi have scored but 11 goals in 12 matches in what has been a largely disappointing and uneventful Absa Premiership campaign.

The Federation of Ugandan Football Associations have roped in Dr. Bernard Ogwel to represent the National Council of Sport on the five-man panel set to vet the next Uganda coach.

Although the move will not come as a surprise to many in the sports fraternity, Ogwel believes his experience in Ugandan football justifies the appointment.

The Kampala International University lecturer has featured prominently in FUFA administration for years before recently crossing over to NCS as the assistant general secretary in charge of administration.

“I was not surprised at all by my appointment. My seniority and experience in Ugandan football must have played a big part in my nomination,” Ogwel told Daily Monitor.

“Apart from my high level educational background (has a doctorate), I’m a qualified coach, I played in the top league with Kamba FC (Lira) and I handled super league matches as a professional referee.”

Ogwel joins Zambian legend Kalusha Bwalya (CAF and FIFA member), Edgar Watson (FUFA CEO), Asuman Lubowa (FUFA Technical Committee) and Livingstone Kyambadde (Uganda Coaches Association) in the panel to search for the new coach.

Although FUFA indicated that they will announce the new coach on November 15, FUFA publicist Ahmed Hussein said Watson and Bwalya have been engaged in a CAF technical and development conference in Cairo this week.
