Looking Back: Manyama’s Important Goal For Chiefs

In one of Kaizer Chiefs’ last games before the COVID-19 lockdown, Lebogang Manyama scored the winning goal to make sure Amakhosi were comfortable at the top of the log.

Manyama has had an incredible 2019/20 campaign so far, where he’s missed just one Absa Premiership encounter all season, scoring six goals, one of which was in a big Soweto derby win earlier this year.

Chiefs played away to Orlando Pirates in the Absa Premiership at the FNB Stadium on February 29, winning 1-0, compliments of a goal by the 29-year-old midfielder.

Manyama’s goal also put an end to the Bucs’ six match winning streak in the league and speaking on Chiefs’ official YouTube account, the player explained how he managed to hit the back of the net on the day.

“Obviously it was a pleasure to score in such a game, I also know it comes with the analysis during the week, we knew that I would probably have spaces - in that space where I was because we saw that they had a weakness there when they had possession and (it) opened up so much space there,” he said.

“Obviously it was also with the help of the other guys, the movement of Reeve, pressing the ball, then Nurkovic and Castro opening up space to pull the centre-backs wide, so it was just me and Makaringe, so I thought you know, why not,” Manyama added.
