Official: Sundowns Announce Manyisa Signing

By Shaistah Kader - Aug 13, 2017 02:05 PM @Shaistah_K

Mamelodi Sundowns officially confirmed the signing of former Orlando Pirates captain, Oupa Manyisa.

Pirates chairman, Dr Irvin Khoza announced the club’s new head coach, while also breaking the news of the shock transfer of Manyisa to the Chloorkop-based club on 3 August 2017.

The Soweto giants have made several changes to their team ahead of the 2017/18 season, bolstering the squad with the likes of Wayne Sandilands and Thamsanqa Sangweni, as well as parting ways with the likes of Brighton Mhlongo and Mahlatse Makadubela.

However, Dr Khoza sent the football fraternity into shock when he broke the news of Manyisa’s move to Sundowns, confirming that it was in the best interest of the 29-year-old.

"It is not an easy decision but in the best interest of the player. There are still a few details to finalize. Oupa Manyisa will be joining Sundowns. He has an unbelievable record with Pirates. Oupa Manyisa leaves to Sundowns as a highly decorated Orlando Pirates player,” Dr Khoza confirmed to the media yesterday.

Now, Sundowns have since confirmed that the deal has been finalized and Manyisa will be donning the Ka Bo Yellow colours for the new 2017/18 campaign.

Manyisa was named on the bench along with George Lebese for Sundowns' MTN8 tie with Maritzburg United.
