Cruyff to Debut

MANCHESTER () -- Dutch forward Jordi Cruyff is set to make his debut for English league and cup champions Manchester United against Ajax Amsterdam on Saturday.


Cruyff, who completed a $1.2 million move from Barcelona last week and reported for training with United for the first time Thursday, is likely to play half a game against the Dutch champions in the four-club Umbro tournament in Nottingham at the weekend.


Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is also hoping that striker Andy Cole and midfielder Ryan Giggs, who both missed the 3-0 friendly defeat against Inter Milan on Wednesday because of injury, will be fit to play.


The winner of the match between Manchester United and Ajax will meet the winners of the second game between English premiership teams Nottingham Forest and Chelsea in the final Sunday.
