AmaZulu to face Man United

AmaZulu are closing in on a deal that could see them play English Premier League side Manchester United in Durban in July.

Usuthu are set to battle the 19-time English Premiership champions at Moses Mabhida Stadium on July 18 in a once-off friendly, pending the negotiations.
According to Usuthu’s marketing and brand manager Lunga Sokhela the deal could be finalised in a matter of days.

The idea was triggered after a visit to the Moses Mabhida by the Manchester United support staff and it was initially meant to be a four-team tournament involving United, AmaZulu, Mamelodi Sundowns and Ghanaian side Asante Kotoko.

However, the promoter could not come up with the money and as it stands, Manchester United are negotiating directly with AmaZulu for the friendly.
