Pitso: Oupa Is Not Done With Football!

Pitso Mosimane is confident that Oupa Manyisa’s injury will not be the end of his professional career.

The midfielder snapped his Achilles’ tendon during the Shell Helix encounter with Kaizer Chiefs, with the player now needing surgery. Speaking to the media, Mosimane revealed that Manyisa still has lots of time to recover from his injury and return to football and he should use Sibusiso Vilakazi as inspiration.

“This injury of snapping the Achilles, it happened to Morgan Gould and he was 32 and where is he?” Mosimane said.

“It happened to Sbu Vilakazi when he was with Bafana.”

“I think Oupa must just look at Vilakazi, Vilakazi came four weeks ahead of the program, four ahead of the normal rehab and turn around and it was amazing but we know why because everyday he was at the gym, looking after himself, weighing himself not gaining any weight. On the treadmill, in the pool, strengthening and eating right. It is unbelievable his program.”

“Maybe it is genetics I don’t know but I know the program now because I was watching the boy passing by the other side with his head down and working hard. What a professional. I think Oupa must just look at him. Sit with Vilakazi and our physio.

“He will be back. We will support him. I don’t think he is done. He has speed on his legs you must see it. When your speed goes then you must let go but he still has speed in his legs and he must look at Kekana, he is still playing and what a football player,” he added.
