Orlando Pirates skipper Thulani 'Tyson' Hlatshwayo says he has no problem lifting the MTN8 trophy with club veteran Happy Jele.
The Buccaneers will face Bloemfontein Celtic in the MTN8 final at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday.
Tyson took over the on-field captaincy, after signing from Bidvest Wits at the start of the season, as Jele is no longer a regular starter for the Soweto giants.
However, Hlatshwayo says he still sees Jele as the club captain and would be happy to lift the trophy with him if they beat Celtic.
"Everyone knows that Happy is the club captain. He’s the one who leads us. For me personally, I would allow him [to lift the trophy] and I will be okay with it for him and me to lift the trophy," said Hlatshwayo.
Asked about the chance of winning his first trophy with Pirates, he added: "Obviously, joining the team I grew up supporting as a youngster from Soweto is a success. I came to Pirates to succeed.
"When I was young, I wanted to play for this team and win cups. I feel I have the opportunity to take the first step by winning the MTN8."
