Carnell: R28m Too High For Manyisa

Former VfB Stuttgart and Bafana Bafana legend, Bradley Carnell, says the price asked by Orlando Pirates for Oupa Manyisa’s services, is too high.

As reported in today’s Soccer Laduma paper (edition 874), Russian clubs have made enquiries into Manyisa’s availability, but Pirates’ asking price for the 25-year-old midfielder could jeopardise his chances of moving to Russia.

Carnell, who also spent many years playing overseas, agrees that the price for Manyisa’s services is high, and has advised the Buccaneers to lower the amount.

“Manyisa is a quality player, there’s no question about that, but I think the asking price is high. For a local player playing in a local market, going to the Russian league, I think thats too much. Like I said, I’m not disrespecting Manyisa because he is a good player, but we have to be realistic about these things,” Carnell told the Siya crew.

“Look, there’s money in the Russian League, I’m not disputing that, but I don’t think that the Russian clubs will be looking to pay that much money for a local player. Even teams in the second division of the German Bundesliga are not paying that."

"I think half of that amount, or even R10 million is a reasonable price for Manyisa. Having said that, I’m not an agent, I’m just giving you my honest opinion,” added Carnell.
