Oupa The Ace

Orlando Pirates played 53 games in all competitions last season and Oupa “Ace” Manyisa has played in 51 of those games, yes 51.

We have to take into consideration that not even Cristiano Ronaldo or Yaya Toure played that many games this season.

In those games Oupa clocked 4693 minutes - more than any other player in the PSL. It has been said that world class players are able to cover between 9 to 12 kilometres in one game, Oupa averaged 11,2 kilometres per game.

When it comes to passing, he is superior to all in the South African game. He averages just over 52 passes per game which is not far off from the likes of Mesut Ozil and Steven Gerrard, who averages just above the 60 pass mark.

Ace also has a success rate of 87.5 % in all his passes.

It is clear that Orlando Pirates know his worth which explains the R28 Million price tag have slapped on him. Some may have thought it a bit farfetched but judging by the stats, he is worth every penny!
