Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Oupa Manyisa has not shared any sentiments on the title race with few deciding matches to go.
The former Bucs midfielder does not care to see Orlando Pirates cry on missing out on the league title if it goes to Mamelodi Sundowns.
Manyisa has urged his teammates to be careful and not slip up when it matters most. “People think we are just being boring when we say we have to take each game as it comes. “But when you see the importance of the upcoming matches, you can understand that we cannot afford to slip up,” Manyisa said.
“I want to win the league again. It has been a while since I have experienced that feeling. It is not even personal that I have to help Sundowns.
“They are my team now. I’m happy that Pirates are playing well again but I want to win the league for Sundowns.” Apart from winning several man of the match awards in a midfield that includes Tiyani Mabunda and Hlompho Kekana, Manyisa said he is working around the clock to get back to his best.
For him that could also mean a return to Bafana Bafana, exactly what the 29-year-old midfielder desires most. “Everyone at the club will tell you that I do not feel I am where I need to be.
I may have won man of the match here and there but I know when I am at my best. That is why I am working so hard and it really helps to have Mabunda and Kekana next to me.
“At the end of the day, my best could not only see me hold down a place at Sundowns but also take me back to Bafana. That is where I want to be, and my club coach Pitso Mosimane has also said that he wants me playing for the national side.” The Brazilians will be back in action on Wednesday against PSL dark horses Free State Stars at Loftus Versfeld.
