Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane believes captain Alje Schut will be fit to play in the Nedbank Cup final against Ajax Cape Town on Saturday.

Schut, who will be returning to the Netherlands at the end of the season, is eager to end his time at the Brazilians on a high and will hope to do so with a win over the Urban Warriors in Port Elizabeth at the weekend.

It wasn't clear if the 34-year-old would play again for the club after he was stretchered off during 'Downs 1-0 win over Vasco da Gama last month, but the sturdy defender could well be in line for a fairy tale ending after returning to training at the weekend.

Mosimane revealed, following their 1-0 win over AmaTuks on Saturday, that Schut will be available for selection for this weekend's showpiece.

"He trained, he was kicking and it looks good. I think he will be ready for the final," said Mosimane.

"It is important to give other guys a chance. We were a bit at sixes and sevens at the back [against AmaTuks], but why substitute, give the other guys a chance.
