Will Manyisa Continue To Wear The Armband?

Oupa Manyisa’s reputation with the Orlando Pirates faithful took quite a knock after reports emerged that he would join Mamelodi Sundowns in January… But has hurt his chances of being captain for the remainder of the season?

Ace’s agent repeatedly stated that Manyisa was to join the Brazilians by the time the transfer window concluded last Friday, and as speculation moved into full throttle, further analysis of his season took place.

Many thought that the weight of wearing the armband after Senzo Meyiwa’s sudden death took its toll on Manyisa, but it was later speculated that his drop in form was down to him knowing he would move to Chloorkop. 

The supposed deal was expected to make Ace the highest paid player in the country, according to Moloto, who also claimed that Manyisa wanted the switch to the capital city of Pretoria.

If Manyisa did really want the deal, and if the outcome of his speculated future to join Downs did have an impact on his game, will Eric Tinkler still give him the armband?

Ever since the leadership duties were placed on his shoulders, the 26-year-old has rarely shown any form of management with his teammates… Tinkler could very well be forced to revise his captaincy. 

Bucs fans, should Manyisa still be wearing the armband for the second half of this season?
