After introducing himself to the PSL with 11 goals in his first season at Free State Stars during the 2011/12 season, Manqele has been a disappointment at Chippa United. A move to big-spending Sundowns was his undoing as he struggled to reproduce the same form and gained weight. A loan move to Moroka Swallows did not help either.
Manqele is undoubtedly very talented, but he has not improved. He can score goals but has lost some pace and will need to use his time at Chippa to recharge his batteries. Fortunately, the 28-yearold still has time on his side.
