Budge Manzia (born 24 September 1994)[1] is a Congolese international football player who currently plays for SFC Opava. He has represented DR Congo internationally.


At club level, Manzia played in the Tunisian Ligue Professionnelle 1 for Étoile du Sahel before moving to the Czech Republic to join FK Dukla Prague in January 2014.[4] He joined Baník Sokolov of the second league on loan in July 2015.[5] He scored in their first game of the 2015–16 Czech National Football League, a 1–0 win against FK Pardubice.[6] Manzia scored a hattrick in Sokolov's 3–0 win against Varnsdorf in November 2015 before his loan spell expired.[7] In April 2016, Manzia scored his first Czech First League goal in a 2–2 draw at Mladá Boleslav. He scored the second goal of the game in the 11th minute after a cross from Jakub Mareš, having provided the pass to Mareš for the first goal earlier in the game.[8] In the winter break of the 2016–17 season, Manzia joined second-tier side SK Sigma Olomouc, signing a two-and-a-half year contract.[9]

Manzia represented the Democratic Republic of the Congo in a friendly versus Burkina Faso on 14 November 2012.[10] Following his debut he was named in the Congolese squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations but did not play.[11] He was also named in the Congolese squad for 2013 African U-20 Championship.
