Cape Town - Orlando Pirates captain Oupa Manyisa has played more games than most PSL players over the last few years but he insists he is not feeling tired.

Manyisa led his side to a 2-0 victory over Tunisia’s SC Sfaxien on Saturday but was substituted for Thandani Ntshumayelo.

Manyisa, though, insists that he wants to play as often as possible.

"I am not feeling tired," he told Sport24.

"This is my job. I am a footballer and I enjoy playing.

"I have to continue playing as long as I am not injured, I will enjoy the game and help the team.

"It's good to keep playing because you are having that game time every player needs, and I am lucky that I am playing all the time."
