Parker: I did not expect we would click so fast

Bernard Parker is excited ahead of the new season following a good showing in their MTN8 encounter.

Amakhosi fought back from 2-0 to draw 2-2 with Mamelodi Sundowns in their quarter-final tie at the weekend.

A penalty shoot-out saw the Brazilians claim the win, but with the club's new signings already impressing, the veteran attacker says they are more than ready to face TS Galaxy in their DStv Premiership opener.

Parker told the club's website: "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.

"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.

"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."

Parker was also delighted to score against Downs. He added: "I played higher up in this game, as a striker. In previous games I've played as a midfielder and couldn't get into scoring positions, trying more to construct and consolidate build up play to get the team up to an attacking phase.

"I would like to add more goals if I keep playing in a higher position. But wherever the coach will put me."
