Manyisa comes face to face with Pirates |
Mamelodi Sundowns star Oupa Manyisa will face his former club Orlando Pirates when the two sides clash in an ABSA Premiership encounter on Tuesday night at Orlando Stadium.
The former darling of Pirates supporters who joined Sundowns at the start of the season will come across his former teammates and the club that put him on the map.
Ace was part of the team that won trebles back to back and his partnership with Europe based Andile Jali was regarded as the best midfield duo the club has had as they dominated the middle of the part.
Manyisa started off as a left back in Rudi Kroll’s team and shifted into the middle position where he excelled and won the hearts of the Pirates supporters. His goals against his current club Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout challenge and the semi final winning goal against Chiefs in the MTN8 semi final are believed to be one to remember for the Randfontein born player.
His former mentor Harold “Jazzy Queen” Legodi who is a Downs legend and was part of the Pirates technical team last season holds and rates the midfield maestro highly.
“It is going to an emotional game for me to face the club that made me who I am but I have to do my business for my new club and I hope to be included in the line that will face Pirates” stated Manyisa
