Lane: Oupa Is Not Orlando Pirates

In light of the rumours pertaining to Orlando Pirates midfield maestro, Oupa Manyisa’s earmarked move away from the club Gavin ‘Stability’ Lane is in firm belief that no single player is worth the well being of the entire club.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma Mr Stability asserted that football is an unpredictable industry and that should Manyisa part ways with the Buccaneers then they would have to go on and find suitable player to take over that midfield role.

“Players moving from one club to another is part of football. Clubs need to ensure they have continuity. No club should ever place their expectations on a single player, and no single player makes the team,” said Lane.

“Oupa is a fantastic player and if a club is willing to spend that money on him great. Pirates will have to have find a player who can vacate that position.”

“It’s no doubt that Oupa along with Andile Jali were one of the best midfield parings, but players come and go. Look at Manchester United, everyone thought the wheels would fall off when Cristiano Ronaldo left but that was not the case.”

“A similar situation happened when Bale left Tottenham for Real Madrid. Orlando Pirates are a big club and whether they buy another player or promote a player from their junior ranks they shouldn’t have a problem replacing Ace, commented the Bucs legend.
