Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana player, Bradley
Carnell, says Orlando Pirates are pricing star player Oupa Manyisa’s out of a
Soccer Laduma are reporting that several Russian clubs have
enquired as to the availability of Manyisa, but Pirates’ asking price for the exciting
midfielder could scupper any chances of a move abroad.
Pirates have reportedly set a R28
million price tag for Manyisa.
Carnell, who himself gained vital experience in the German
Bundesliga with VFB Stuttgart, agreed that the price set by the Buccaneers is
far too high.
Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Carnell confirmed what many
local fans have been saying for some time, that Manyisa is a quality player and
that a lower price tag is not an insult to Manyisa or his playing ability but
Carnell is simply asking for a more realistic figure.
Carnell was of the opinion that despite
the spending power of the Russian teams, no club would be interested in a
player for such a fee. He added that even German second division sides would
not be paying that much.
Carnell offered his opinion on a respectable price and
came up with a figure of between R10million and R14 million.
