The tackle that caused the injury

Bongani Zungu, a midfielder for Mamelodi Sundowns, has allegedly apologised to Bernard Parker, a striker for TS Galaxy, for his crunching tackle that broke the latter’s shin in a Carling Knockout match this past Wednesday.

The tackle occurred in the 53rd minute of the game, when Zungu lunged at Parker with his studs up and caught him on the right leg.

Parker was stretchered off the field and taken to hospital, while Zungu received a red card for the foul.

The text message and the flowers

According to a Sunday World source, Zungu sent a text message to Parker upon the club’s return to the team’s hotel in the early hours of Thursday.

The source said that Zungu felt it was a private matter and he did not want to go public about such a delicate matter.

“The team even arranged for a bouquet of flowers to be sent to the injured Parker.

Tim [Sukazi] was probably not aware that Zungu had reached out.

“Parker even responded to Zungu’s message on Thursday.

“He has shown remorse since he became aware of the magnitude of the injury,” said the source.

The surgery and the recovery

Parker underwent a successful surgery and has been discharged from hospital.

He shared a message on social media to thank his fans and supporters for their well wishes and love.

“Hi guys, the surgery was a success. Thank you so much for the love and support, especially from my family, I love you guys.

“Mr Tim Sukazi and the TS Galaxy family, the coaches, the management, thank you for the support.

“My captain, well done for the Man of the Match award and getting us into the next round as a team.

Everyone who sent messages, especially the other soccer clubs, thank you so much, and our supporters, thank you so much for the well wishes and all the love you have been showing.

I appreciate you. See you guys soon on the field, God bless, one love,” he wrote.
