All Stars promise attractive football

A-League All Stars coach Ange Postecoglou has no doubt Manchester United's opening pre-season tour shock loss in Thailand will have them fired up for Saturday's sold-out friendly in Sydney.

And the three-time championship-winning mentor is promising an exciting contest with plenty of action from his motley crew of players.

Postecoglou is yet to select a starting XI for the showpiece at ANZ Stadium, but said his 20-man squad have bonded well after just a few solid training sessions.

"We've thrown a bunch of blokes together but they've taken it with the right attitude," he told reporters on Tuesday.

"We respect the fact it's going to be a challenging task for everybody - coaches, players - but if you tackle it with the right attitude then you can still get the outcomes you want."

The Red Devils, who arrived in Sydney on Sunday, appeared hardly concerned about Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Thai All Stars in Bangkok for David Moyes' managerial debut.

Postecoglou was just as nonchalant, saying the game - played in hot and humid conditions - was totally irrelevant.

"This week will be a different proposition. They're here for a week, the weather will be better for them and they'll acclimatise," he said of the English Premier League champions.

"They're Manchester United. I'm sure even losing in a friendly game will give them extra motivation to do well against us."

Postecoglou said his focus was on developing a style of play that suited a majority of his team and not the hype surrounding their opponents.

"We want to have a good contest on the night. They're (United) a fantastic team, quality outfit. People pay good money to come out and watch a good game - we've got to play our part in that.

"I think from our perspective, if we go out there and just try and play attractive attacking football, it will be a good spectacle for everyone."

Brisbane Roar striker Besart Berisha said he was excited about showing his wares against Manchester United in front of a 80,000-plus crowd.

"I really hope I can perform like I do with Brisbane ... and try to maybe score a goal," he said.

"Any game I bring my passion with me, this is what I always love in football."
