It will be a test of character for Orlando Pirates' new coach Ruud Kroll when his side takes on the English Premiership giants Manchester United in the Vodacom Challenge in Durban on July 22.

Kroll will arrive in South Africa on Sunday to prepare the side that will play in the Phakisa Cup, the four-team tournament in Sasolburg on July 5.

Pirates PRO Mickey Modisane said the coach had indicated that he would not use players who had been on national duty recently and had given them 17 days off before the Vodacom game.

He pointed out that new players and youngsters would be utilised for the Phakisa event to see how they perform.

He said newly acquired goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs, from Bidvest Wits, and Thulasizwe Mbuyane, from Free State Stars, would be part of the team.

"I presume the coach would be sparing more senior players for the Manchester United game, which we're determined to win at all costs."

Modisane added that the players would be back at training on Thursday and the coach would resume training on the day.

"He will get the opportunity of assessing the players' fitness and their tactical discipline.

"The tournament will allow the technical staff to gauge the strength and weaknesses of the team."

A solid volunteer programme of 200 people per stadium is being coordinated by Peter McIntosh and Karen Poole to help with ushering spectators to their designated gates, seats, as well as with the VIPs.

Tickets for the game are available at Computicket and Shoprite outlets.

Supporters can phone the club offices at 011-484-2084 and ask for Thandi Merafe for more information.
