Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns defender Siyanda Zwane admits that the imminent departure Alje Schut will create a significant void at the club, which Zwane feels will be particularly difficult to fill.

During his three-year tenure at Sundowns, Schut has been a critical cog in the Bafana Ba Style machine and has offered a considerable amount both in defence and on the offence.

Most significantly perhaps, he led the team to a Premiership title in 2014.

"When people talk about a captain, they talk about someone wearing an armband, but that guy is something else," Zwane told Soccer Laduma.

"What a leader! What a player he is! He leads by example, in training sessions and in games. That guy is a true professional.

"I wish he was staying. He's a big player for us. You can see his contribution in the team... the way he plays, the way he gives his best in each and every game. He's even scoring goals for us. He's an amazing individual and a great person.”
