Bernard Parker has vowed to give his absolute best to help the Kaizer Chiefs bag more trophies. The Chiefs might be leading the league standings with nine points but it has been a while since they landed a trophy - and it's something Parker hopes will change.

According to the Chiefs' official website, Parker said they have about 16 matches left to turn the club's trophy drought around.

He was quoted saying:

"Potentially we have 16 games left for the season; 11 in the league and hopefully five in the Nedbank Cup - we can achieve something."

The veteran forward added he will try to use his "experience" to help the team both on and off the field in the coming 18 months.

He said:

"My aim will be to win as many trophies as we can. It has been a long time since we tasted success, so we are just going to work hard week in and week out to ensure that we are successful."

Parker scored the winning goal for the Chiefs in the 2013 Nedbank Cup. Talking about the victory, he said it's crucial that they pay attention to detail in every game because the tournament is unique and could throw "surprises" at any moment.

He added:

"We have the material to do well and our technical staff is taking care of all the details to ensure that we make it a memorable tournament this season."

The Chiefs are set to take on Royal Eagles on Saturday in the Nedbank Cup. Briefly.co.za reported earlier Pitso Mosimane threw shade at the Amakhosi side for drawing an "easy" team while the Sundowns are set to face off against SuperSport United.
