AmaZulu plan attack on Man United
AMAZULU coach Roger Palmgren says his team will not be brushed aside by Manchester United when the two meet in a pre-season friendly at Moses Mabhida Stadium tomorrow night.
The Red Devils arrived in Durban last night without many of their big stars, such as Wayne Rooney, Nani, Patrice Evra, Danny Welbeck and Phil Jones, who were on international duty during the Euro 2012 tournament.
The injured Tom Cleverley and Nemanja Vidic have been left behind, while Ryan Giggs is busy captaining the Britain Olympics team.
The squad, led by England international Rio Ferdinand, is still formidable, with the likes of Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick and Antonio Valencia likely to give lessons on the pitch.
Palmgren, however, insisted that his team would treat the game like any other pre-season warm-up game.
"The players will come to the party," Palmgren said. "I think our team is strong enough to offer some resistance. They might be (fragile) in the opening minutes but they are going to take 15 minutes to understand who they are playing against."
In their last visit to the country, United lashed Kaizer Chiefs 4-0 in the 2008 Vodacom Challenge final.
Palmgren said Usuthu would avoid a similar fate: "We're going to attack. We're going to play according to our game and not to theirs."
The match will be beamed live on SABC1 and kickoff is at 8.15pm.
