TS Galaxy attacker Bernard Parker has issued an update on the horrific injury setback he sustained on Wednesday.
Parker was unlucky as he suffered a career-threatening injury against Mamelodi Sundowns in the Carling Knockout Cup quarter-final following a horrific tackle by Bongani Zungu just before the hour mark.
The 37-year-old therefore couldn’t finish the match as he was stretched off with a broken leg.
On the other hand, for the dangerous challenge, Zungu received his marching orders as he was shown a straight red card.
BERNARD PARKER ON HIS INJURY SETBACK
The former Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs star shared the good news on Friday that the surgery was a success.
“The surgery was a success thank you so much for the love and support, especially from my family, I love you guys so much,” Parker posted on Instagram.
BERNARD PARKER THANKS EVERYBODY FOR THE SUPPORT
Parker further thanked everybody who wished him all the best during the difficult times.
“Mr. Tim Sukazi and the TS Galaxy family, the coaches and the management thank you for the support.
“My captain with a Man of the Match performance to get us to the next round as a team.
“Thank you to everybody who sent messages, especially the other soccer clubs. To the supporters, thank you for the well wishes and all the love that you’ve shown.
“See you guys soon on the field, God bless, One love.”
Now Parker’s focus will shift to recovering and getting better.
Parker’s injury is a huge blow for The Rockets as he’s one of the key players with a lot of experience.
This season he made nine appearances in all competitions. However, he was yet to find the back of the net or provide an assist.
