The Orlando Pirates medical team have revealed that midfielder, Oupa Manyisa, will begin training again from next week.

Manyisa had to miss out on Bucs' 1-0 win over Al Ahly in the first-leg of their CAF Confederation Cup semi-final over the weekend, and the Siya crew revealed yesterday that he is only likely to return to action in three months.
According to Pirates' official website, the operation went as scheduled, without any complications, and the 27-year-old was discharged from Linksfield Hospital earlier this week and will start upper body training from next week.
