Here’s The Real Reason Why Oupa Manyisa Left Pirates! It’s been almost a month since Manyisa shockingly left Orlando Pirates for Mamelodi Sundowns. Despite writing an open letter thanking his former club for his years there, the reason for his departure had not been revealed until now.
Manyisa shared that he was a taking a path of growth when he made the move to Sundowns and he is not fazed by the challenge of fighting for his place in the star-studded Sundowns team.
“I will grow as a player because I know that I have to start afresh and fight for my place in the team. It’s part of life. If I didn’t want to grow as a player I would have said that I don’t want to go anywhere and stayed where I was and everything was simple for me,” he said.
Manyisa added that by staying at Pirates he wasn’t doing justice to the younger boys as he would be “blocking their progress”.
“I also want to take my football to the next level‚ which is why I joined an ambitious team like Sundowns that wants to win everything.”
