“I mean, Parker has been part of the furniture for longer than I was, and I didn’t expect him to be on the list that was let go at all,” Cardoso told Soccer Laduma.
“He’s one of the main attractions at the club, and letting him go is also a very big loss for Kaizer Chiefs.
“They could have roped him in as a player and coach in the development, which would have helped the club big time with all the experience he has.
“He’s a big loss for Kaizer Chiefs family because he’s done exceptionally well there.”
