Lebohang Manyama describes hell ride in Turkey before joining Kaizer Chiefs


Johannesburg – Lebohang Manyama has described the hellish conditions that led to him being continually benched despite training and playing well in his few opportunities playing a single season at Konyaspor under three different coaches.

Manyama arrived at Kaizer Chiefs in August 2018 itching to erase the memory of the energy-sapping experience of having tried but failed to convince Konyaspor that he was fit for the Turkish first division. He rediscovered his form in 2019/20, mostly deployed with great success in a new central midfield role by Chiefs coach Ernst Middendorp.

The midfielder signed with Konyaspor after being named the 2016/17 Premier Soccer League Player of the Season for Cape Town City. However, things did not go as planned in Turkey.
