Pretoria - Winning the Nedbank Cup will be the ideal way for SuperSport United coach Gavin Hunt to end his tenure at the club, said veteran striker Sibusiso Zuma.
Although Hunt has repeatedly denied joining Wits, he has been linked with the side since the beginning of the year, and Zuma said he would be missed at Matsatsantsa.
"It's a very important game. The fact that it's a cup final, but for us, it will be a good send-off for the coach and for us to finish on a high note," Zuma said at the club's training base in Pretoria on Tuesday.
"He's a little bit crazy sometimes, but we all love him," he said.
"I'm going to miss him. We're really going to miss him."
Matsatsantsa booked their ticket to the final courtesy of a thrilling 3-2 extra-time victory over Platinum Stars earlier this month, to give the Pretoria outfit an opportunity to defend the title they won last season by edging out Mamelodi Sundowns.
United were humbled in their last league outing of the season, going down 3-0 to Dikwena on Saturday, leaving Hunt's side winless in their last three fixtures.
Despite heading into Saturday's final without any real momentum, Zuma said he was looking forward to an exciting final against league champions Kaizer Chiefs in Durban at the weekend.
"We had two days to rest, which was good.
"The atmosphere is good, the boys look happy and that's very important.
"It seems like everyone thinks we're going to lose. I know Kaizer Chiefs are playing good football at the moment. They are a great team, but we are champions.
"I really wanted to play against Chiefs, because I know they could fill a stadium. There's nothing more beautiful than a cup final with a sold out crowd."
Saturday's conclusion will be the second meeting between the teams in as many weeks, with United holding Chiefs to a 1-1 draw at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on May 15, ending an eight year Premiership drought for the Amakhosi as they celebrated lifting the title with a game to go.
Zuma scored the equaliser for United in that game after Chiefs took the lead, and Zuma felt confident he could do the same in the final.
"Scoring is not a problem for me, I know I can score goals.
"Mentally, I just have to be there, and fitness wise as well. I've been trying to work extra hard to finish the season well.
"Now that the final is here, I know that I'm going to play well. The most important things is that, when I get chances, I have to take them."
