United’s only focusing on themselves


Adelaide United winger, Bruce Kamau has stated he and his teammates are far more concerned with their own preparation for Friday’s Semi-Final at Coopers Stadium to be worried about their opponent.

Following last night’s match between Brisbane Roar and Melbourne Victory, the Reds now know the opponent for their home Semi-Final in a week’s time will be either Melbourne City and Perth Glory. 

And whilst the Reds can take confidence going into the match knowing that they have comfortably beaten both City and Glory in the domestic campaign this season, Kamau has said United aren’t concerned with the team they face. 

“We haven’t been focusing on (other results) and have just been worrying about our own preparation for our game,” Kamau said. 

“It’s about working hard for us, and looking at what we need to do in the lead up to next week’s game.

“Regardless of the team we play, we’re going to go out there and play our football. I’m confident we can come away with the win and make it into that Grand Final.

“But we can go out there and do well against both Melbourne City and Perth. We’re worried about our own football and making sure we are doing the right things first, then we will look at our opposition.” 

Kamau acknowledged the unfamiliarity with having a week off as a result of the Reds claiming the Premiers’ Plate, but highlighted the benefit of having extra time to freshen up United’s squad after such an arduous campaign. 

“All the boys are ready for our Semi-Final and we really want to go out there and do well, not just for ourselves, but for also for our fans.

“It’s different not having a match to play this week, but it’s good. We get to rest our bodies a bit more and have more time for preparation and I know we’ll go into the game raring to go.”

He also stated how he has been content with his performances in recent weeks and will be looking to continue his good form in whatever capacity necessary to benefit the team. 

“I think I’ve been doing well in our games recently, but there’s always room for improvement and I am looking to take my game to the next level. 

“Deepening on what Guillermo asks of me, I’ll be prepared to do my best for our team.”
