Will Manyisa Be Considered A Pirates Legend If He Leaves?

With Orlando Pirates midfielder Oupa Manyisa looking set to join Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns, and looking back at what he had done for the Sea Robbers, would it be fair to label Ace as a Bucs legend should he leave the club?

For one, he has been very influential for the team since he was introduced as a Pirates player in 2008 from the Africa Sports Youth Academy. Two years later, and in the the 2010/2011 Absa Premiership season, we saw the league give birth to an ‘Ace’, who set the local football scene alight with his amazing ability to control a game almost at will.

Manyisa was at the forefront of every title success for Pirates during that season, as the club managed to win every trophy on offer domestically. The following campaign saw Pirates emulate their domestic treble success, with Ace once again being a standout performer.

It was these two seasons which ultimately confirmed Manyisa as one of the best midfielders the country has seen. Donning the number 20 jersey, Manyisa quickly became the Ghost's darling, with the fans continuously chanting ‘AAAAACCCE’ every time he would get a touch on the ball.

Also, following the sudden and unexpected death of former Bucs captain Senzo Meyiwa, Manyisa was assigned as one of the captains in the squad, further elaborating the fact that Manyisa is indeed a valuable member at Mayfair.

However, will Manyisa’s success and status amongst the fans be enough to consider him a Bucs legend, should he leave Pirates?
