Manaka closing on Platinum Stars debut after failed move to Orlando Pirates

Posted: 10 October 2014 Time: 13:57

Platinum Stars midfielder Edgar Manaka suspects he will soon make his debut for the club following his surprise move to Dikwena instead of Orlando Pirates on transfer deadline day.

Manaka initially looked like he was heading to Pirates in August but landed up at the Telkom Knockout champions on a three-year deal from Black Leopards

"I don't have much details about the move to Pirates but I believe both Leopards and Pirates could not agree on a tranfer fee," says Manaka.

"However I am happy that I finally realised my dream of playing in the PSL after signing with Platinum Stars. They are a big club and they showed that when they won two trophies last season. I am here to add value to the team."

The former Lidoda Duvha man confirmed that he has had a heart-to-heart chat with Stars coach Allan Freese about his opportunities in Rustenburg.

"You must remember I was not part of the team during the pre-season and was behind in everything, including how they are playing this season," Manaka explains regarding his lack of game-time.

"It's a new environment for me and also I needed to settle down. However so far it has been good. I like the place in Rustenburg, it's more cool and quiet.

"I have been working hard at training and I believe I am now close to making by debut at Platinum Stars."

You did yourself a huge favour by signing in Phokeng Cownaka, at Pirates you were not even going to make the 18 man squad mfana.

Why do overseas based players get transferred and play in the very next match and mzansi coaches feel that they need to wait a while when they get transferred in mzansi?

Who is a big club player at the hole and what are they doing this season to confirm that they are big club players? For the record pie-rates is not a big club, it is an old club.
