Lebo Manyama's Konyaspor Are Into The Next Round Of The Cup
Lebogang Manyama once again started for Konyaspor on Thursday evening in the Turkish Cup, and today found out his opponents for their game in the Round of 16.
The 27-year-old Bafana Bafana international bagged a brace in the first leg of their clash against Batman Petrolspor and was rewarded with a starting spot for the second leg this week as they sought to secure their place in the next round.
