Former Orlando Pirates and Kaizer Chiefs striker Pollen Ndlanya has backed Oupa Manyisa to revive his career at Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila next season after leaving Mamelodi Sundowns.
Ndlanya endured some challenges during his own playing career which led to him leaving Chiefs for Manning Rangers in the early '90s, who weren't well known at the time, but he used that opportunity to get his career back on track.
Manyisa finds himself in a similar predicament after departing the defending Absa Premiership champions for TTM, who recently purchased Bidvest Wits' top-flight status.
The former Amakhosi striker believes TTM will be a good place for Manyisa to revive his career after playing a bit-part role at Sundowns.
"This is football my brother, it's God's plans," Ndlanya tells KickOff.com.
"It the right move for him to revive his career, Manyisa still has a lot to offer. I was also in the same situation and I managed to reclaim my place, so why not him?
"TTM is also a good platform for him, he will get the support he needs. I've watched their games, they have strong support."
The Pirates legend believes the pressure was too big for Manyisa at Sundowns but feels there is a chance for him to get back to his best in Venda next season.
"I think at Sundownsa the pressure was too much because he came from Pirates with a huge reputation," he adds.
"Now there's a chance for him to fight back. It's a blessing in disguise."
