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.
