Nkhatha/Parker partnership extends off the pitch


Nkhatha has scored two League goals in the opening three games with his partner Bernard Parker standing on four giving hope that they could develop a productive combination this season for Chiefs.

"I and Bernard always talk a lot even when we are not on the field. We always talk about the way we need to move around so as to create spaces for each other and the way someone must also make use of that space that we are creating," says Nkhatha adding that he was happy to see Parker doing the business for Bafana Bafana last night with a brace against Mozambique.

"Oh, yes I was happy. With the way he was running up and down I knew he was going to score," adds Nkhatha.

The Zimbabwean striker also notes that he has settled in well at Chiefs where he has fellow homeboys Zhaimu Jimmy Jambo, Lincoln Zvasiya, Willard Katsande and recent arrival Matthew Rusike.

"Everything has gone on well and I am coping well with the demands that with playing for Chiefs because pressure was always there even when I was at Leopards. I am playing according to how the coach wants us to play and its okay. I now just want to see us continue scoring goals so that I help the team win games to enable us to win trophies.

"The presence of fellow countryman is a good motivation because I have felt at home and settled from the very first day that I joined the club. Always having someone from home has been extremely helpful in settling in. As homeboys we always talk about working hard and being focused on the job at hand.

"We always remind each other that we are here to work and that this is what will always be the priority for as long as we are here. We are not here to lazy around and do funny things," he says.
