Stuart Baxter praises Bernard Parker for the Performance he pulled against rivals Orlando Pirates  At Orlando Stadium.

Kaizer Chiefs defeated the Orlando Pirates 2: 1 in a match that saw Chiefs man cling to the Man of the Match award.

“Bernard Parker probably gave one of the best performances I’ve seen in from a PSL player, so the talk of people saying he’s too old, I think people should absolutely put that one away for a while anyway because if he plays like that he gets into any team in the PSL,”

“Bernard ran more than anyone in the team today, he ran over 13kms. David Beckham was praised to the high heavens when he ran 12.4km against Greece in a World Cup qualifier for England, Bernard ran over 13.”

Parker’s sheer professionalism, according to Baxter, is all it takes to motivate him to put on the Chiefs jersey and play his heart out in the manner he did, and the doubters have spurred him on even more.

“What I say to him? Bernard is a marvellous human being, he’s a great footballer, a model-professional but he’s a great human being,” Baxter explained.

“So you can talk to Bernard on a level that is not just to fire him up to play football – I think Bernard thrives on stretching himself.

“Stretching himself as a person, stretching himself as a player, stretching himself to be what Kaizer Chiefs need him to be. And if he sits in the stands, he will be the best player on the stands, if he sits on the bench, he will be a great bench player and that’s his attitude.

“All I do is try and make sure he stays in that zone where he can give that sort of performance, it’s his credit that he can still give it. Even if I give some sort of inspiration, the motivation comes from Bernard Parker, nowhere else.”
