Mnyamane, who has just came back from injury, was back in the mix for United in the Tshwane derby loss to Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday afternoon.

“We possibly brought Thabo back into this game slightly too early. He was out with an injury and I think he struggled with the tempo and pace of the game,” Tinkler was quoted As saying by The Sowetan.

“Maybe that’s an error that I made in terms of my judgment, but we know his qualities and what he’s capable of. If he gains anything it is match fitness and moving forward he can only get better.”
