ORLANDO Pirates have confirmed that midfielder Oupa Manyisa will miss the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final clash against Al-Ahly on Saturday due to an ankle injury.

Manyisa got injured during Pirates’ goalless draw against Polokwane City on Wednesday night at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The 27-year-old was taken to hospital last night where it was revealed that the Bafana Bafana midfielder has suffered an ankle fracture, and according to team doctor, Lazarus Maphakela, Manyisa was going to see a specialist upon the team’s return from Polokwane yesterday.

“Clinical examination revealed swelling and limited range of movement of the left ankle.

“Oupa was stabilised and referred to Mediclinic for further management. X-ray revealed distal fracture of left fibula (fracture above left ankle).

“He will see a specialist in Johannesburg and is expected to undergo surgery to rectify the injury before the end of the week,” he says.

The Sea Robbers are also minus suspended defenders Happy Jele and Siyabonga Sangweni for the first leg tie at Orlando Stadium.­– Kick Off
