Orlando Pirates welcome Oupa Manyisa for the Bidvest Wits clash

Pirates have confirmed on the club website that midfielder Oupa Manyisa is back with the rest of the team after missing the last two games

Orlando Pirates have officially announced the return of Oupa Manyisa to full training and the midfielder says he is ready to face Bidvest Wits on Saturday afternoon.

Manyisa missed his team’s last two games against Free State Stars and TP Mazembe due to a groin injury, but he is back to boost Pirates’ chances of dethroning Chiefs at the summit of the PSL log.    

“I feel good. The injury was not serious, but I felt pain every time I ran so the medical team advised that I miss the match against Free State Stars and TP Mazembe,” said Manyisa.

“He (Oupa) trained with the guys in the gym and now he is back to do some more training with us in the afternoon. He responded well to the treatment and now we will try to get him to work hard and get back in the team,” said Borges.
