Zungu horror leg-breaking tackle on Bernard Parker (watch)

Former Kaizer Chiefs star Bernard Parker fell foul to a reckless challenge from Sundowns midfielder Bongani Zungu that will put him out of action for some time.

Depleted Sundowns eliminated from Carling Knockout Cup

TS Galaxy took a 2-0 lead after 16 minutes but the Brazilians rallied back to grab a last-ditch equalizer from Gaston Sirino in the 98th minute. The Uruguayan making his first appearance of the campaign. Sundowns were without all of their Bafana stars as well as a list of injured players but still fielded a strong XI. They eventually lost on penalties but the real story emerging from the match has nothing to do with the result, despite Rulani Mkowena’s complaining about the timing of the fixture.

Kaizer Chiefs hero Parker sustained a sickening injury

Bernard Parker, a veteran of the PSL, appeared to break his leg in the 58th minute after an over-the-top tackle from Bongani Zungu. Zungu was immediately shown red by the referee after players responded in shock to the incident. 31-year-old Zungu, who hasn’t been a regular in Rulani’s team, appeared to be perplexed and disappointed by the decision. In the heat of the moment, perhaps he didn’t know what had happened and we can’t judge what his motives were when making the tackle, but it looked to be reckless behaviour.
