Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker believes he still has that edge in front of goal despite a disappointing season.

Parker has scored just two goals this season for Chiefs in what has been a difficult season where they failed to defend their Premiership title.

Amakhosi fell just short of silverware on two occasions when they were beaten in the MTN8 and Telkom Knockout finals.

"Most of my career I have been a number 10 and I believe I am the best number 10 in this country," Parker told KickOff.

"That I help in defence that I help in constructing, I help in assisting and I help in scoring for the past years, and I have played in all attacking positions in the team.

"We admit that measured to Kaizer Chiefs' standards we didn't live up to those standards. Thirteen draws means we lost two points from each of those matches - that is 26 points that we have lost where we could have managed the game much better.

"We just want to get over with this season and start fresh and I strongly believe in each and every Kaizer Chiefs member that we will definitely bounce back stronger."
