Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker has completed his Sports Management qualification.

The 33-year-old was one of the top graduates on the day.

The Amakhosi striker’s wife, Wendy, posted pictures of the footballer’s graduation ceremony from earlier in the week.

Parker looks to be preparing for life after football as he is now on the wrong side of 30 having played in Europe and for Chiefs for close to a decade.

“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. Success is no accident,” Wendy wrote on Instagram.

“It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.

“There is no substitute for hard work, 23 or 24 hours a day. We are so proud of you Mr Parker.”
