Oupa Manyisa (born 30 July 1988) is a South African footballer who plays as a Central Midfielder for Eastern Cape side Chippa United FC. He started his senior career with Orlando Pirates F.C. and went on to become a crowd-pleaser and one of the key players in the squad, helping them dominate local football for two consecutive seasons, winning 2 trebles, also being runners-up on the Champions League and Confederation Cup.
After spending 9 seasons and making over 160 appearances for the Sea Robbers, Oupa set out to get a new challenge, much to the disappointment of the fans. He left Orlando Pirates F.C for Mamelodi Sundowns F.C in 2017 but failed to command a place in the starting 11, mostly because of picking up injuries and facing stiff competition in the team. Since then, the injuries have not stopped and he saw himself being released just 3 seasons later.
He went on to join 1st-time campaigners in the Premier Soccer League, TTM F.C. but his contract was terminated just a month after joining, without even kicking the ball. The club cited financial issues, as Oupa Manyisa was getting a hefty salary.
After spending half a season clubless, he was signed by Chippa United for the rest of the 20/21 season.
Oupa Manyisa ’s net worth is estimated to be $500,000, according to the list of richest South African Footballers.
