Cape Town - Former Mamelodi Sundowns captain Alje Schut revealed that Teko Modise gave him the green light to take over the captaincy.

Schut won the Premiership and Nedbank Cup during his three seasons with the Brazilians after taking over as skipper from Teko Modise.

The defender left Sundowns to return home to be with family and take over as coach at Kozakken Boys at the end of last season, but has taken time out to explain why he was given the captaincy.

"I was very happy when Teko was the captain, because I thought he did a fantastic job and is a great leader as well," Schut told Soccer Laduma.

"He came to me and said he thought it would be better for me to wear the armband so that he could focus more on his game.

"I was honoured to hear such words from a player like him and it was also an honour for me to captain a team like Sundowns, just a year after joining.

"Teko and coach Pitso putting so much faith in me was just amazing."
