Soccer-Man City to play two matches in South Africa next month

CAPE TOWN, June 20 (Reuters) - Manchester City will play two matches against South African opposition on a brief trip to the country next month, officials said on Thursday.

Last season's Premier League runners-up take on SuperSport United in Pretoria on July 14 in what will be a first match in charge for new manager Manuel Pellegrini.

They have a second match at Durban's Moses Mabhida stadium against local club AmaZulu on July 18 and will also use the seaside city for a pre-season training camp, they said at a press launch.
