“He has done so well for himself in South African football and he has so much to offer at the club with his experience,” said the Downs skipper during the MTN8 press conference at the PSL headquarters in Johannesburg on Thursday.

“The young players like Percy Tau and Motjeka Mandisha will also learn a lot from him.”

Kekana added that Manyisa’s signing is good for the club as they face a busy football season which includes the Caf Champions League quarterfinals.

“We wanted to beef up the squad and his experience tells you that the guy knows the game very well. We are happy to have him.”
