Sundowns will face Ajax on Saturday, May 16 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Kekana confidently states that Sundowns have the “character” to be crowned Nedbank Cup champions, at the Brazilians media day at their Chloorkop training ground.

“Cup games are different to league games,” said Kekana as quoted the PSL’s official Twitter account.

“It will be about who wants it more.

“The character we have will help us a lot this weekend.

“I've never won the #NedbankCup before so it will mean a lot to win it this weekend,” concluded the midfielder.

Meanwhile, ‘Downs striker Cuthbert Malajila says winning the Nedbank Cup would a lot the players as they have not acquired any silverware this season.

“We are Sundowns. Every game we play is a final to us,” said the striker.

“If we win the Nedbank Cup it will mean a lot to us.”

Kick-off is at 15:00.
