Sundowns’ Oupa Manyisa Looking Forward To Pirates Game! Whilst most players would dread to meet their former clubs, it’s not the case with former Orlando Pirates star Oupa Manyisa who now plays for Mamelodi Sundowns.
The 29 year old says he can’t wait to play against his former club because of the energy in the game when they play Sundowns. “When I was at Pirates, I enjoyed playing against Sundowns because there was always a good atmosphere and the stadium is always full,” Manyisa said.
It seems Manyisa thinks a Pirates vs Sundowns game is more exciting than Soweto Derby.
“People always complain that the Soweto derby is always a draw, but Pirates and Sundowns is an open game. Each team is attacking because both want to score and win.
“Football is my job so I have to go there [and] enjoy myself and make sure I help my team. There is nothing to be concerned about Pirates because I am no longer there; I have a new home now.”
