Since Lehlohonolo Majoro joined Orlando Pirates, he has spent more time warming the bench than he has on the pitch.
Majoro went to Bucs hoping to get game-time, this after he fell down the pecking order at Kaizer Chiefs. Even though he did try to give his best, the result hasn't been as he'd hoped. He's mostly being used as a substitute, and that has surely hurt his confidence.
When Kermit Erasmus left Bucs earlier this year, it was believed Major will finally get a run. But Eric Tinkler had other ideas about his striking force. It was always thought Erasmus was the one benching Major, but his departure has cast doubts over Majoro's Bucs stay. One could say that Bucs' investment in Majoro hasn't really paid dividends, and the player's career also hasn't benefited from the relationship.
For me, Majoro no longer has a place at Mayfair. I mean, with the emergence of players like Menzi Masuku and Tendai Ndoro's resurrection, there's no way Tinkler could bank on Major. I have no doubt the ex-Chiefs striker still has it in him to poach goals, I doubt it's at Pirates that he can do that. Majoro still has the goalscoring abilities, and I believe they could be effective elsewhere out of Mayfair.
He has always been a great player, and he still is, but his career has stalled greatly at Bucs. Majoro should leave Bucs in order to resurrect his ailing career. His experience and skills could really be valuable for other clubs, just not at Pirates.
Do you think Majoro will stay at Pirates?
