Manyisa Opens Up About His Move From Pirates To Sundowns

Oupa Manyisa Opens Up About His Move From Orlando Pirates To Mamelodi Sundowns

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 11, 2017 09:34 AM

Former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Oupa Manyisa, has revealed why he joined up with Mamelodi Sundowns after a decade-long career with the Buccaneers.

Pirates’ chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza announced Manyisa’s shock move to the Chloorkop-based club early in August this year, where the player went on to make his official debut for Sundowns in the 2017 MTN8 competition.

Speaking to the Brazilians’ official website, the 29-year-old revealed why he left Pirates for Masandawana, saying that his main reason was that he wanted to grow as a player.

“As a player, you have to grow. I took the path of growing by coming here. I will grow as a player here because I know that I have to start afresh and fight for my place in the team. It’s part of life. If I didn’t want to grow as a player I would have said that I don’t want to go anywhere, I just want to sit where I was already at and everything would be simple for me,” Manyisa said on Sundowns’ official website.

“I decided to go because there are some players who want to play football who were coming after me. I also felt that I wouldn’t be doing justice to the younger boys there if I stayed and blocked their progress. I had to leave so that they can start growing and make names for themselves. I also want to take my football to the next level which is why I joined an ambitious team like Sundowns that wants to win everything,” he added.

Wow!Ambitious?Well,Manyisa was a big name at Pirates,but my understanding is,you had unambitious atitude for being an old player in the team.I as well understand that you was the stambing block of Pirates success.Good luky on your new team where you sing all songs of foitball.I will akways like you as a player,and you are a very good player ever.I also like it if your pockets gets fat with good cash.Soccer is a temporal job that takes a lot of ernegy;and the goid cash is realky expected.UP THE BUCS.

Manyisa you disrespected my team son, you disrespected the Ghosts, you disrespected Iron Duke plus your new boss Patrice Motsepe himself. How even think DuNu is a next level? Ambitious than the team the draw inspirations from? I use to like you boy but after this, you just reminded me your cowish days when you let us down. You will soon go to the bin son, never disrespect Ghosts, ask Tso and Steve they will tell you. Sies next level my foot.
