SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt says Bernard Parker still has the same quality, which can help his youthful side as he moves closer to signing a deal with the club.
Parker, 36, who was released by Kaizer Chiefs at the end of last season, has been training with SuperSport since last week and Hunt said he will sign him.
The two worked together at Amakhosi two seasons ago, and Hunt was impressed with what he saw at training from the veteran striker.
“Bernard is training with us. I’m trying to do something [sign him] if I can. I think he is a fantastic player, but that is something that we will see,” Hunt said.
“Nothing has been signed yet. Besides quality as a player, I think he is fantastic. He showed in the last few days at training that he’s still got it, and I think in that position we need somebody, but nothing has been signed or sealed yet.”
Heading into the new season with his youthful squad, Hunt also believes it will be a competitive campaign. SuperSport will start their season with a home match against Chippa United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday at 5.30pm.
