Muhsin Ertugral believes MP Black Aces midfielder Lebogang Manyama is the best player in South Africa at the moment.

Manyama is on loan at AmaZayoni this season from SuperSport United and has been in scintillating form as Aces have climbed to third on the Absa Premiership log.

The 25 year old has two goals and two assists in the PSL this season and Ertugral said – “he is the best player in the country. I have never understood why South African managers have not been looking at this boy properly. He is a fantastic player.”

Ertugral, meanwhile, said that Aces are not looking to reinforce their squad in the January transfer window.

“I don’t believe in transfers in January, you get players that have been rejected by other clubs and you pay crazy money. The chairman asked me what I want and I said ‘ok, get me Bernard Parker!’. I was just joking, you want a player that will add value and teams will not release these players, so why go into the market?”
