“I don’t know what forced or encouraged him to join Sundowns, but what I know is that for him it’s the best move,” Motale tells

“I don’t think he will have a problem to settle in at Sundowns because most of the players at Sundowns are local.

Motale says he wants to know the reason why the former captain of Pirates decided to jump the ship.

“I still want know the cause of the move, but I guess we will not know that,” Motale adds.

Motale also believes that Manyisa will make an impact at Sundowns this coming season as they play a style that suits Manyisa.

“He will make it at Sundowns! Oupa’s style is the very same style that Sundowns is playing – keeping the ball. So, that’s Oupa’s style. He is going to fit in like a hand in the glove.”
