Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Bongani Zungu believes Nedbank Cup glory this weekend would be the perfect send-off for departing captain Alje Schut.

The Brazilians' Dutch-born skipper is set to depart Chloorkop at the end of the season, with a move back to his homeland in the pipeline.
In his two-and-a-half seasons in Tshwane, Schut led the Brazilians to Premiership glory in the 2013/14 campaign, although they then conceded the crown to Kaizer Chiefs this term.
However, against Ajax Cape Town in Port Elizabeth on Saturday, Sundowns will look to honour Schut with a Ke Yona winners medal, the last available piece of silverware this season.
"Alje has been a great inspiration on and off the pitch," Zungu told Football411.
"He has taught me a lot as to how to conduct myself as a footballer and how to be professional.
"He deserves a nice send-off, it would mean a lot to him.
"As young players in the team, we know that he is the guy we can all go to for advice."
Sundowns will be looking to capture their first cup title in close to eight years against the young Urban Warriors, and Zungu said in the final, where there is little room for error, execution will be the difference.
"We know that we will get chances it's just an issue of converting those scoring opportunities," he said.
"We have a game-plan that we will need to follow.
"The only thing we need to do is to play according to the coach's instructions.
"Whoever scores first will have the upper hand and will have the advantage on the day."
