PRE­TO­RIA - Mamelodi Sun­downs mid­fielder Tiyani Mabunda says team­mate Oupa Many­isa is show­ing ex­actly why the club signed him from Or­lando Pi­rates.

Many­isa was strug­gling for con­sis­tency at the Buc­ca­neers in the last few s ea­sons, but it s eems t he move to Chloorkop is bring­ing the best out of him at the mo­ment.

He and Mabunda are form­ing a solid part­ner­ship in the en­gine room and have done well on oc­ca­sions when cap­tain Hlom­pho Kekana has been left on the bench.

Mabunda says it’s an hon­our to play with the diminu­tive mid­fielder.

“Oupa is a great player. He has been there, he has done that and every­body knows his abil­ity. For us to have a player like him in the team is a plus be­cause he has so much to of­fer.

“What I re­alised when I came to Sun­downs is that even I was tipped not to be a player for Sun­downs. But once you be­lieve in who you are and what you are ca­pa­ble of do­ing, you don’t change your plans. You know that God will place you at the right place and at the right time. “I am hon­oured to be play­ing along­side Oupa. Our mid­field at Sun­downs is strong.
