Manyisa Appointed New Pirates Captain

After the sad passing away of Senzo Meyiwa, many wondered who would be the next Orlando Pirates captain.
 
Despite debates from outsiders, coach Vladimir Vermezovic didn't take time to identify a new captain as he has since appointed midfielder, Oupa Manyisa, as the new Bucs captain.
 
Manyisa's official duties started on Saturday in the team's 2-0 loss to SuperSport United in the Telkom Knockout semi-final at Orlando Stadium.
 
Vermezovic told the Siya crew that Manyisa is the perfect fit for Pirates captain.
 
"Yes from now on Oupa is our captain. He deserves to be the captain.  He is in Bafana Bafana and last season he played almost all the team's games and won the player of the year at Pirates. That shows that he can lead the team.  So we have decided that he is our captain from now," the Serbian born mentor explained.
