Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Vladimir Vermezovic has boasted that Oupa Manyisa can play in many positions.

Addressing the media at the PSL offices ahead of Bucs’ all-important semi-final (first leg) tie with Bidvest Wits, Vermezovic said that they have to use Manyisa’s ability to their advantage.

“Oupa Manyisa is excellent player who can play in many positions,” said the Buccaneers coach via their website.

“Yesterday (Wednesday, August 13) he played behind Kermit (Erasmus); he got ability to penetrate from the second line and we have to use that.”

“For me as a coach it is more important to create chances - the goals will come for sure.”

“We create a lot of chances and we don’t score, but we are playing good football; but what is the worry now is what will happen when we start playing bad – that is the question; but look, the goals will come for sure.”

Kick-off between Pirates and Wits is scheduled for 15:00 on Sunday, August, 17.
