Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane hopes the club can make the final of the Nedbank Cup to give Bongani Zungu a fitting send off to his career at the club.
Zungu, who has been sidelined by a leg injury since January, will leave Sundowns at the end of the season to join Portuguese outfit Vitoria de Guimaraes.
Before the injury the versatile midfielder had been one of the most instrumental players in the team.
Mosimane hopes Sundowns can reach the Nedbank Cup final so that Zungu can make his final appearance for the club.
"I would have loved to see him back in action again this season but I don't think so," Mosimane told Goal website.
"He has started his rehab but it will take time before he fully recovers. I would have loved him to at least get a few games before he leaves.
"I don't think it will be possible and that's part of football. If it works out and we reach the finals of the Nedbank Cup then he can maybe play like Alje Schut did last season."
