DAVID Obua, Chiefs’ player-of-the-year, will lead his side in an intriguing pre-season contest against visiting English side Manchester United.

United started their tour of South Africa with a 4-0 win over Orlando Pirates on Sunday.

“Manchester United will definitely push us. These are the kind of games we need to improve our game,” Obua said soon after the tour was confirmed.

The Cranes and Kaizer Chiefs star will line up against a United side with experienced campaigners in Ryan Giggs, Wes Brown Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who have amassed a number of international accolades.

Obua started pre-season training in superb form and left his mark on the Limpopo Soccer Challenge tournament last week when he found the back of the net with one of his signature free kicks.

He scored with a ferocious long distance shot in Chiefs’ first game of the tournament against Black Leopards.

He said: “It really felt good to be able to come off a long break and score a goal like that. It has really boosted my confidence . If I played in the stars last season, I need to take my game to the stratosphere this time around.”
