Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says that
Oupa Manyisa will not be treated any differently to other players in his squad
when it comes to selection.
Manyisa has not played for Downs since early December and
appears to be currently out-of-favour at Sundowns.
He did not feature in last weekend's Nedbank Cup Round of 32
defeat to Chippa United, with the likes of Lucky Mohomi and Siphelele Mkhulise
getting selected instead.
Speaking to reporters after the shock defeat to Chippa,
Mosimane explained that Manyisa was no different to anyone else in his squad.
He said: "Who? Manyisa, but you didn't ask me about
Mohomi last week, when am I going to give him a chance, and you didn't ask me
about Pitso (Mkhulise), when am I going to give him a chance?
"And you never asked me about Anele (Ngcongca), when am
I going to give him a chance?
"This is a chicken and egg story because there is
another one who is not playing also. You can ask me when am I going to give
(Jeremy) Brockie a chance?
"Last week no one asked me, ‘when am I going to play
Phakamani (Mahlambi)’, (now) he comes in and scores, nobody asks.
"It is a top question, it is right, these things do
happen, when am I going to play Reyaad (Pieterse)? (Cuthbert) Malajila?"
Sundowns are back in action on Tuesday night when they take
on unpredictable AmaZulu in an Absa Premiership clash at Loftus Versfeld Stadium in
Kick-off is at 14:30.
