Which Manager Has Manyisa Performed Best Under?

Orlando Pirates captain Oupa Manyisa has played for seven managers since his debut for the club in 2007, but which tactician got the best out of the Mzansi star? Find out!  

Manyisa is widely considered to be one of the country's best midfielders, and "Ace", as he is affectionately known, is most coaches' dream player.

The skill and intelligence he possesses makes Manyisa a difficult opponent, despite him not contributing to as many goals as he probably would like.

The 28-year-old has played under the likes of Roger De Sa and Vladimir Vermezovic, among others – here are his statistics per manager, excluding current boss Muhsin Ertugral, under whom he's played just five games.

Manyisa's numbers per boss:

Roger De Sa – 10 goals and 6 assists in 58 matches

Ruud Krol – no goals and no assists in 34 matches

Vladimir Vermezovic – 4 goals and no assists in 35 matches

Julio Cesar Leal – 3 goals and 1 assist in 25 matches

Eric Tinkler – 3 goals and 4 assists in 24 matches

Augusto Palacios – no goals and no assists in 13 matches 

Manyisa played more matches under De Sa, under whom he contributed the most goals, than any other manager, while his statistics under Augusto Palacios and Ruud Krol are perhaps forgettable. 

Do you think Ertugral can still get the best out of Manyisa?
