City welcome Bidvest Wits in the MTN 8 semi-final first-leg on Sunday, and Manyama is fully focused on the encounter than reports surrounding his future.

“I’m just focused on the game with Wits which is crucial for us to do well,” Manyama said.

With the transfer window closing next week Thursday, Manyama is pleased with their acquisitions thus far, adding they will provide the necessary stability to the side.

“We have made some very good signings that’s going to be very important for the team this season. It’s also very important that we help them settle in and improve, especially a player like (Ayanda) Patosi, who has never played in the PSL,” Manyama said.

“Given time, he will settle in and do well. We know he is tried and tested. I’m pretty sure he will help us with his good, well-documented expertise,” Manyama concluded.
