Bernard Parker planning life after football

The Kaizer Chiefs striker, Bernard Parker explained that he is already planning for life after football. He doesn’t have any immediate plans to hang up his boots but he is looking for options after finishing football career.

Despite the fact he turned 33 this year, he played in all of the nine Glamour Boys’ games so far during this season. He started every Absa Premiership game with incredible energy as club marched to the top of the table. His injury against the Cape Town City last week may mean that he will face a spell on the sidelines.

Then again, it may be a positive thing as it will give him some spare time to bury his nose into a book. Bernard Parker revealed that he is currently studying for his Higher Certificate in Sports Marketing Management as he is considering options for a career after football. He is looking into the future and planning for what lies ahead.

Bernard Parker always finds time for books

On the topic of his studies, the Glamour Boys stalwart said; “It is going very well and I am definitely enjoying myself… The great thing about this is that I am studying part-time. I always make sure I make some time for books in between my family and football. It is very important to maintain the balance in all aspects of life despite the fact that education is the key here. In case you are not very keen to study for a career outside of sports, then you can make yourself wiser if you choose some of many careers which are related to sport.”


In the meantime, ‘Die Hond’ also sent a message to the 2019 examination candidates, saying “You have crossed a long way to get this far.
