Pirates chairman Irvin Khoza revealed the Bucs captain’s departure at a press conference on Thursday.

“Oupa Manyisa will be joining Sundowns. He has an unbelievable record with Pirates,” said Khoza.

“Oupa Manyisa leaves to Sundowns as a highly decorated Orlando Pirates player.

“It is not an easy decision but in the best interest of the player. There are still a few details to finalize.”
