Pirates Confirm Manyisa Availability
Orlando Pirates PRO, Mickey Modisane, has confirmed that star midfielder Oupa Manyisa, will be available for selection ahead of the Buccaneers' first league match of 2015 against AmaZulu at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban tonight.
The Siya crew reported earlier today (Wednesday) that "Ace" would face a late fitness test to determine the outcome if he would be available for selection or not.
Bucs supporters will now breathe a sigh of relief that their captain has been declared fit and ready to face Usuthu this evening.
The Bafana Bafana midfielder was suffering from a knock he picked up while on duty with the national team at the 2015 AFCON in Equatorial Guinea.
Modisane told the crew that the player had travelled with the team and was now available for selection against Usuthu.
"Yes, he is with the team and available for selection but you know all is in the hands of the technical team and the head coach. But as far as I am concerned he travelled with the team.
"He is fit and ready to play tonight," the vibrant Modisane explained.
