Oupa leaving Pirates

BY NATALI IVERSON - JANUARY 16, 2015

Orlando Pirates midfielder and captain, Oupa Manyisa, will be moving from the Buccaneers during the January transfer window to Mamelodi Sundowns, his agent, Thabo Moloto, confirmed on Thursday.

Pirates’ chairperson, Dr Irvin Khoza and Sundowns’ owner Patrice Motsepe, are currently discussing an appropriate fee for the midfielder.

“As things stand, Manyisa will join Mamelodi Sundowns before the transfer window closes,” Moloto said.

“Look he is okay. He is happy because of what he has achieved at Orlando Pirates and it’s not like he is leaving Pirates without achieving anything. He won back-to-back trebles under the tutelage of Rudolf ‘Ruud’ Krol and reached four finals. He’s very excited to be joining Mamelodi Sundowns,” he added.
