Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker aims to be PSL top scorer

Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker says his personal target for the 2011-12 season is to become the League's top goal scorer.

Parker, who was the League's leading goal scorer with 10 goals when he left Thanda Royal Zulu to join Serbia's Red Star Belgrade in 2008, says he still harbours ambitions of winning the Golden Boot Award.

"The 10 goals that I scored before leaving are now in the past, but I still want to be the top scorer of the League and will take each game as it comes," said the striker, according to Kickoff.com.

He would, however, not reveal how many goals he has set himself as a target, saying only that, "The League has already set the target," in an apparent reference to the 26 goal-target set by League sponsors Absa for the top goal scorer to win a car.

The Amakhosi striker says he has settled in well in the "stronger" PSL, but has not lost hope of returning to Europe at some stage in his career.

"I am still hopeful of returning to Europe, but my aim now is to play for Kaizer Chiefs and win things with them," he said.

"I have settled in well in the team and I am happy that I have been able to get my first goal for the club. Now the aim is to transform that scoring feeling to the team and I will always give 100 per cent whenever I play."
