United were thrashed 4-1 last Saturday at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium. But Furman has faith in the team’s ability to bounce back against the Brazilians on Saturday.

“It’s definitely a game we looking forward to. It’s a derby. There is no better way to bounce back. The boys are looking forward to the match,” said Furman.

Furman believes the Tshwane derby can turn what has been a bleak first half of the season around for United. The former Bafana Bafana captain says United players need to realise that they can steer the ship in the right direction.

“As players we need to take responsibility. The game against Sundowns is a perfect opportunity to bounce back.”
