The combination of Oupa Manyisa and Andile Jali were as good as bread and peanut butter… They produced some wonderful magic and left everyone salivating for more. Simply put, they were unstoppable.
The duo was largely influential during Pirates’ treble-winning campaign, in which their combination in the midfield dominated proceedings and created a large portion of the goals during those two seasons.
On the field, their partnership looked unbreakable, and their understanding was unmatched by any other duo in Mzansi.
Since Jali’s departure to Belgium, Ace’s form hasn’t been the same and many have pinned that on his partner’s exit from Parktown.
However, Manyisa has rubbished those claims and has revealed he doesn’t miss his former teammate at all.
“Angimukhumbule (I don’t miss him). Maybe other players in the team miss him, but I don’t. I just continue with my game and help the team get results,” he told Soccer Laduma in issue 915.
These are some surprising remarks, and, to be honest, I don’t believe this. Do you believe that Manyisa is not missing Jali?
