Parker was on the receiving end of a reckless tackle by Sundowns’ Bongani Zungu in the 58th minute of the game, which resulted in a red card for the Bafana Bafana international.

Parker, 37, has had an illustrious career in Europe and South Africa, playing for clubs such as FC Twente, Red Star Belgrade, Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana.

He is the all-time leading scorer for Chiefs with 77 goals in all competitions.

He also represented South Africa at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Former Bafana Bafana midfielder Bongani Khumalo, who was at the stadium as a TV presenter for SuperSport TV, revealed his inspirational message to Parker after the incident.

He said he told Parker that he had been through something similar and that this was not the end of his career.

He said he encouraged Parker to focus on recovery and his strength, and to go back to what he loved doing, which was playing football.
