Kaizer Chiefs utility player Bernard Parker is already impressed with how quickly the team has gelled under Stuart Baxter.
This follows Amakhosi’s come-from-behind 2-2 draw against Mamelodi Sundowns in the MTN8 where they would eventually lose on penalties.
The Chiefs performance on the day left Parker in awe as he feels the team didn’t take time to learn and click so fast.
Parker is encouraged with how Chiefs fought back against Sundowns, and that gives him hope that the Soweto giants will be a tough nut to crack.
“I did not expect, now that we’ve reshuffled and have quite a few new inclusions, that we would learn so fast and click so fast,” Parker told the Amakhosi website.
“It’s good that we are getting to gel this fast. With the Kaizer Chiefs that gave the champions a problem, I believe we can grow further and be tough to beat,” he said.
Furthermore, the 35-year-old feels Chiefs will soon be back to their old self, especially in terms of their playing style and winning culture.
And he understands that it’s up to the current squad of players to make that happen by remaining true to the cause.
“There are a lot of signs that Amakhosi will be back soon in terms of the style of play and in terms of winning ways.
“It’s now up to us as players to keep our attitude and our game temperament levels up every time come match day,” added Parker.
All eyes will be on Chiefs when take on TS Galaxy at the Mbombela Stadium on Sunday.
Kick-off is at 15:00.
