Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Oupa Manyisa remains optimistic about his future at the club despite his contract expiring in June.
The 31-year-old has only played twice this campaign before suffering a
season-ending injury in the Shell Helix Ultra Cup clash with Kaizer
Chiefs in October.
It remains unclear when the industrious midfielder will be able to
return to the playing field, but he believes he still has a future with
Masandawana and is looking forward to discussing a potential new
contract at the end of the season.
"We will start discussing that [contract] at the end of the season,
for now, I'm just focusing on my rehab so I can go back and play
football," Manyisa said, as quoted by SowetanLive.
Asked if he believed that Sundowns would give him a new deal despite
not playing in the league this season, he said: "I'm not going anywhere
and I will still be a Sundowns player come next season."
He added: "It was not that difficult, everyone has been great to me
they have been supporting me throughout my injury so the coach [Pitso
Mosimane] has been good to me and the technical team.
"But the injury is coming alright... I started jogging and we will
see when I can be ready. But I won't play anytime soon it could be next
