“WE believe in our game.” These were the words of Maritzburg United centre back Siyanda Xulu ahead of the Nedbank Cup final against the Free State Stars this Saturday in Cape Town.

United players were jovial to say the least during a media briefing while the team held an open practice session.

The team completed various drills and exercises before speaking to the press.

“Throughout the season players have started to believe in how good they are and that is why we are where we are today,” said Xulu.

Xulu said that Free State Stars are a very aggressive team and they would have to work just as hard as them to win the match.

“In terms of combination play and the way we pass the ball around, we are doing very well as a team and we will use this to try and win on Saturday,” said Xulu.
