Ben Amos is jetting back to England to join up with Hull City with whom he has agreed a loan move for the 2012/13 season.
Amos played the full 90 minutes vs Ajax Cape Town on Saturday afternoon, and in an impressive performance could do nothing to stop Alcardo van Graan’s flick from a corner late in the second half.
Amos spoke with MUTV after the game and said:
“The first half was obviously much quieter, We had a lot of the ball but it was all in the middle of the park and we didn’t create much in the first half which we were disappointed about. When the lads grew more tired in the second half, they had more opportunities.”
“I had a lot to do with my feet and a couple of saves but obviously it’s little things in pre-season that happen. Judging distances and things like that. People talk about match fitness and match fitness for a keeper is about getting your distances and decision-making right, things like that. There were a couple of things like that but I was happy on the whole.”
“We’d have been massively disappointed to lose. We’re disappointed with a draw anyway with the amount of possession we had. To lose would have been very disappointing. Obviously, we want to get into the winning spirit and mentality so it’s good we didn’t lose the game.”
When asked about his loan move to Hull City he had this to say:
“I can’t wait, It’s a new challenge and one I’m going to throw myself into and get as many games as I can. Then I’ll come back here and look to push on.”
