Both players helped Amakhosi win the PSL titles under Baxter, who recently returned to the Soweto giants
Kaizer Chiefs forward agent Bernard Parker has commented on the veteran’s future with the Naturena-based giants.
The former Bafana international Bafana’s current contract with the Glamor Boys expires at the end of the month and he has been one of the team’s key players this season.
A source said Daily sun that Parker and his teammate Willard Katsande were offered a one-year contract respectively by the Soweto giants.
Katsande’s current deal with the Chiefs is also set to expire at the end of this month after being used as a partial actor this quarter.
“Management will engage the players on their new contracts after the Caf Champions League,” a source said.
“Both players still have a big role to play for the club as they will also guide the youngsters on and off the pitch.”
Amakhosi is set to face Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca in the semi-final round trip of the Caf Champions League, with the first leg to be played on June 19 in Casablanca, while the return leg will be played on June 26. in Johannesburg.
Reached for comment by the same post, Parker’s agent Mike Makaab explained that Chiefs management had yet to engage him about the new deal.
“Nothing has been discussed yet,” Makaab said.
Parker is one of the Chiefs’ oldest players to join the Soweto giants in June 2011 from Dutch club FC Twente.
The 35-year-old has been used as a central midfielder, winger and striker this season and he has made 38 appearances in all competitions – registering one goal and one assist in the process.
While Katsande, 35, who is a former Zimbabwe captain, also joined Amakhosi in June 2011 after the Glamor Boys bought him from former Ajax Cape Town.
The defensive midfielder has made 23 appearances in all competitions in the current campaign and has recorded two assists.
Parker and Katsande won four major trophies with the Chiefs under Stuart Baxter, who recently returned to the club replacing Gavin Hunt as head coach.
The duo were key players under Baxter as the Soweto giants won two PSL titles, the Nedbank Cup and MTN8.
