Orlando Pirates midfield kingpin, Oupa Manyisa, is expected to return to training in March, according to the club.

Manyisa has been battling to recover from the ankle injury he picked up in the game against Polokwane City in September.

While Pirates is blessed with some of the best players in the league, some sections of the Bucs fans have been highlighting the absence of their captain from Eric Tinkler’s line-up as one of the reasons for the team’s slow progress in their Absa Premiership campaign this season.  

The Buccaneers have provided an update on Manyisa’s injury on the club’s official Twitter account.

“INJURY UPDATE: Manyisa out with fibular fracture. The fibula bone runs parallel to your shin. RETURN: March 2016,” Bucs tweeted.

Another injury setback for Pirates is that of Happy Jele. The defender is expected to return in two weeks. With Ntsikelelo Nyauza returning from suspension, Tinkler is likely to prepare for this weekend's Soweto Derby against Kaizer Chiefs with the 25-year-old in his plans.   

“INJURY UPDATE: Jele suffering a right hip flexor strain. He is working on flexion & strengthening. RETURN: 2 weeks,” Bucs stated on their Twitter account.

Lehlogonolo Masalesa is expected to return later this week, while Siyabonga Sangweni will be waiting on the advice of the medical team about his situation.
