City to face Usuthu, SuperSport

Manchester City to face AmaZulu and SuperSport United

Posted: 18 June 2013 Time: 9:55 am

KickOff.com can reveal that Manchester City will play SuperSport United and AmaZulu when they travel to South African next month.

The former English champions confirmed on May 8 that they would tour Mzansi for the second time since 2009, but have taken their time confirming the opposition.

Now we can confirm that the opening game will be against SuperSport United at Loftus Versfeld on July 14, before a match against AmaZulu at Moses Mabhida Stadium four days later.

Usuthu also had the privilege of hosting Manchester United last year.

Organisers say the two games will be dedicated to former President Nelson Mandela and to highlight Mandela Day on July 18, the day of the AmaZulu match.

City will also be doing various CSI projects in the two cities before jetting off to their next pre-season assignment in Hong Kong.

Is this team coming for holiday or pre season training. How do you gauge or strength and readiness for the up coming season while you play oponents like Amazulu.

So Man city saw Kaizer chiefs as worthless opponents, chiefs needs pirates to get the vodacom sponsorship, chiefs needs pirates for the Carling cup, chiefs needs pirates to partake in any international friendly. Chiefs on its own can not get any form of proper recognition without the Double Treble champs - FACT!!! We are on ACL duty - what is chiefs doing...

Man city reckons SSU and Amazulu are better opponents compared to reigning league champions Zebras. "We would prefer free flowing, open play type of football and im afraid Chiefs or whatever theyre called wont offer us that, they play ####..one route football we settle for that. Its very sad we cudnt get to play Double Treble champs Sea robbers as i understand they are on champs league duty - but Amazulu and SSU will do" - Roberto Mancini, Man City Manager

How can Chiefs need a team which has Half of its trophies??

How can Chiefs need a team that only play in full-house stadium when playing against Chiefs??

How can Chiefs need a team that has half of its supporters??

How Chiefs needs a team that has never beaten England's most successfull team??

How can Chiefs need a team that Chiefs dominates in Head-to-Head??

How can Chiefs needs a team that spent 8-years without winning any trophy/cup/silverware??

U ar one of the useless Pierats who started supporting Pierats after the dubious treble that was won through dubious penalties

They won't challenge Kaizer Chiefs, bcos they know exactly that they will be humilliated again.

They rather play Pierats Or Sundunusa those are walkover.

Pirates is a superbrand team - do u knw wot that means....pirates has a far superior brand value that can only be challenged by the proteas and the boks as far as south african sports is concerned. How many of those cups are real, 27 one-day pre-season cups...mxm..desperate measures call for desperate times - sabc 1 commentator. Why would ma city go for lowly amazulu and SSU and not the reigning league champions...i already gave u an answer!

@Sir eeemzaa Walikhosi.... You Just Forget to Tell The Godfather Gorilla Fan that Orlando Pirates Took 18 Years to Win the League Title from 1976 to 1994 and 8 Years without Winning Nothing and Kaizer Chiefs is the Only Team to Win the CAF Cup in the P.S.L. Era and that is a Big Fact. Love & Peace.

According to Man City - "we dont believe chiefs are worthy of our time, we prefer stronger opposition. In the absence of pirates, amazulu and SSU will do:"
