“If Pirates’ Best Player Is Manyisa Then Any Player Can Be Signed By Pirates,” Says Andile Cele! The former Pirates midfielder explains why he believes so.
“To be honest, any player can play for Pirates nowadays. In the past, Pirates were equal to Chiefs and you could compare them to Madrid and Barcelona in Spain.
“Not everyone can just sign for Barcelona and share the same dressing room with Messi. It takes a special player or quality to be in the same dressing room with him,” Cele told Isolezwe.
For those reasons, Cele doesn’t think Pirates having Manyisa as their best player is good for them. “If a top player at Pirates is Manyisa then this means any player who scores one or two goals in the ABC Motsepe League can be signed by Pirates,” he said.
Cele says in his days when he played for the club, it wasn’t easy. “It was difficult to join Pirates in the past. There was quality, players such as Thabo Mngomeni, Godfrey Sapula as well as Pollen Ndlanya, guys who played overseas. You had to be at your best to play with them.”
