Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker has admired the new faces that have joined the club saying they have all the attributes Chiefs is known for.
Chiefs challenged the Absa Premiership’s top guns before a ball was kicked in the transfer window when it signed high profile footballers such as Khama Billiat and Lebogang Manyama.
Billiat has sparkled so much that many pundits can argue his case for the league’s signing of the season so far, while the likes of Manyama and Adriamirado Andrianarimanana have shown glimpses of high quality as they work their way to full fitness.
Parker is already beaming with optimism that their contribution to the club will be of great value as they bring “a new dimension” within the Amakhosi culture, which is being monitored from far and wide.
“The new guys in the team have really stepped in and they have also brought a new dimension to what Kaizer Chiefs is about,” Parker said.
“They’ve got the flair, the skill, the pace and all that Chiefs is known for. Us as senior guys, we’ve also drilled in the culture of the team that we’re always under the watchful eye of South Africa and Africa as a whole.”
The 32-year-old Bafana Bafana international also says the spirit and camaraderie amongst the players has improved massively, and the competition for places has also contributed towards this.
“We’re also now more together in terms of the tactical aspect, we defend together, we move up together and we’re more compact and solid, and I hope it stays like this,” he concluded.
