Manyisa ready for derby final

2011-09-08 10:07

Johannesburg - Cometh the hour, cometh the man, but come Saturday's MTN8 final between Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates it could be just be Oupa Manyisa.

The midfielder's goal against Mamelodi Sundowns two weeks ago booked the Bucs' spot in the weekend's showpiece, but the 23-year-old reckons the all-Soweto match-up will be a humdinger.

"When it comes to the derby, it doesn't matter whether it's a final or a league match, we just want to do our best," Manyisa told the PSL's official website.

"It's a new match and no one has any advantage, all the past results are history and what will count on the day is who wants it the most.

"We are ready to play and have prepared well.

"We realise that team work will help us succeed on the day so we have looked at possible ways to win and have prepared as a unit, this will take team effort from all the players."

And as for his wonder strike in the semi-final encounter at Loftus Versveld. It's still giving the player goose bumps.

"That goal was special. I believe it's the best goal in the tournament so far and it was important for the players, the club and our supporters. I am happy that I was able to produce something like that for our supporters," concluded Manyisa.
