Bernard Parker and Kaizer Chiefs are back at the Village in Naturena as Amakhosi restart training after the coronavirus-enforced shutdown in South Africa.
“This virus [coronavirus] caught us all off-guard,” said Parker on the club’s website. “I was so used to training at the High Performance Centre at the Village, often working out extra, and never acquired a treadmill at home. Luckily, I have a nice garden, so I worked out in the garden, doing a lot of running and all kinds of other exercises.”
“It’s also great to be with your teammates again, it’s like a breath of fresh air. Of course, we keep [a] distance at this stage. We do a combination of fitness and ball-work. It’s all very much game-related.”
