What Does Manyisa’s Drop In Form Tell You?

Hello fellow Buccaneers! Waking up after a victory always makes for a sweet start to the day, but as we reflect on the positives, time also has to be spared for the negatives… That is largely Oupa Manyisa’s drop in form… 

The midfielder is known as one of the most exciting and creative players in South Africa’s game, which saw him handed the nickname Ace. However, he now seems far from his usual self. 

It’s quite bizarre when one thinks about it… This is the same player that played 52 games for Pirates back in the 2013/14 season, but who is now struggling to manage with less than half those appearances to his name.

Last night was evidence to the statement, where he failed to produce any of the creative magic he used to instil in the team, and he was allowed little time on the ball.

We’ve repeatedly pondered whether his dip in form is down to the speculation cast on his future, but it remains to be seen whether he can put that all behind him. 

However, pressure could still be a factor… The fans are eager for him to prove himself again in the team and he has the added responsibility of being captain.

There are many factors that could have aided his decline, but what do you make of it?
