Cape Town - Kermit Erasmus of Orlando Pirates has defended Bernard Parker, after the Kaizer Chiefs striker took some criticism for winning the Golden Boot award after only scoring 10 goals. Parker finished as the league's best striker despite last finding the back of the net in February.Erasmus, who scored two goals during Pirates' 3-1 win over Bidvest Wits this past weekend, said that the Bafana marksman should be proud of himself."He should be proud of (the 10 goals)," Erasmus told Goal.com. "It's tough playing for big teams. There's pressure and you've got to risk certain things on the field and do something to create the goals, which has been difficult for Chiefs this season," he said.Erasmus highlighted that the majority of the strikers in the PSL normally set themselves a target of at least 10 goals per season, and he believes that Parker did brilliantly well to reach that mark.The former SuperSport United forward, Erasmus, finished the season with seven goals in all competitions in his first season with the Buccaneers.By way of comparison, Liverpool's Luis Suarez and Real Madrid's Cristiano Rolando both scored 31 goals to top the English Premiership and La Liga goal-scorer charts this past season.
