    Man United defeat Amazulu 

    It was a closely contested affair but the English Premiership visitors, Manchester United, who are the most valuable sports team in the world, finished winners against Amazulu.

    Berbatov fed a beautiful pass to Federico Macheda, who beat Tapuwa Kapini in goal. It was not Berbatov’s only moment and he fed well while on the field.

    Sir Alex Ferguson singled out Tsewu Mokoro for particular praise for covering his areas well and a solid showing. Coming from the coach of 19 times English winners and last year’s runners-up, this is high praise indeed.

    Meanwhile, the Swedish coach of Amazulu, Roger Palmgren was thrilled with his side’s performance and rightly so. The local chaps appeared not to be overwhelmed by the occasion and created several opportunities that might have secured a draw on another day.

    All round, an excellent performance to celebrate the 94th birthday of former president Nelson Mandela.

    Durban loves Man United 

    Tickets for the big game on Wednesday and the training session have all been sold.

    Some 51 000 fans are expected to watch local side Amazulu take on the mighty English Premiership giants, Manchester United. Kick off will be at 8pm in the Moses Mabhida Stadium and fans of both sides are expected.

    The English side has brought with crowd pleasers like the experienced captain Rio Ferdinand, midfielder Michael Carrick, midfielder Paul Scholes and striker Dimitar Berbatov, as well as some younger talent including strikers Federico Macheda and Javier Hernandez.

    The match will be played in pretty cold weather and those lucky enough to attend should dress warmly. The weather will be of no concern to the Amazulu players however, some of whom hope to catch the eye of talent seekers for Man United. The opportunity to be signed by a top side like Man United will be additional motivation for players, who will be giving their very best effort to sneak a memorable win.

    Amazulu for top four finish 

    The coach of Amazulu insists that talk in the camp is about securing a top eight finish, despite reports to the contrary.

    Last week, the general manager of Amazulu, Peter O’Connor, that the target for the 2012/2013 season was to finish in the top four. He maintained that the pressure was on the Swedish manager Roger Palmgren to deliver.

    Palmgren was quick to point out that nothing in his contract imposes a top four season finish and he insists that they are required to maintain or improve on last season’s result.

    Amazulu face Manchester United at the Moses Mabhida stadium on Wednesday. This game will form the start of the celebrations of the local club’s 80th anniversary.

    Their first MTN8 cup opening game is against Moroka Swallows in early August and despite the Swedish coach pointing to a top eight finish in the premiership, many expect more of the team that has just signed the Liberian international midfielder, Dulee Johnson.
