South African Premier league giants Kaizer Chiefs who have Nigeria international Daniel Akpeyi as one of their regulars, have parted ways with veteran Bernard Parker. Parker has been with the Soweto Giants for 11 years.

The 36-year-old veteran playmaker wore the armband for the club in the past two seasons, which has been underwhelming, scoring 64 goals in 359 appearances for the Glamour Boys.

‘Hond’, as he is fondly known, has won four major honours with the club: two Premierships titles (2013/13, 2014/15), Nedbank Cup (2012/13) and MTN8 (2015/16) crown

“His exceptional talent and leadership helped Amakhosi to win four major trophies, including two league titles. His professionalism, both on and off the field, is an object example to any aspiring young footballer.

“Thank you for your great service and dedication to the Club, ‘Hond’. You remain a true legend.”

Parker is also the holder of the 2013/14 Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot award and the 2014 African Nations Championship Golden Boot.
