Majoro: I’m Not A Politician, I’m A Footballer!

Orlando Pirates striker, Lehlohonolo Majoro is currently Bucs' leading goal scorer with 11 goals in all competitions and is currently joint league top goal scorer alongside Polokwane City’s Puleng Tlolane and Moeketsi Sekola from Free State Stars on eight league goals.

Bucs legend why Majoro is the best finisher in the league 

However, despite his recent goal scoring form which has seen him rattle the net in the last five league fixtures he has played in, "Ballojoro" is still somewhat peeved about being denied what would have been his ninth league goal of the season and 12 in all competitions.

This follows referee Robert Smith’s decision to judge the opening goal between Pirates and Ajax Cape Town’s league encounter on 13 December 2014 as an own goal by goalkeeper Anssi Jaakkola.

In a recent interview with Soccer Laduma’s David Minchella, the Ladybrand-born forward expressed his disapproval of Smith’s decision, citing such actions as having a negative impact on a player’s confidence.

“I must say I’ve scored 12 goals, although the record says 11. They made a goal I scored against Ajax Cape Town an own goal,” Ballojoro tells Soccer Laduma.

“I always ask myself, if I take a penalty and it hits the post and then hits the keeper and goes in, whose goal is it?”    

“Ja, unfortunately we don’t know how the rules are being made by the people at the top (dubious goals are decided by a ‘Dubious Goals Committee’)…but I’m not a politician I’m a footballer. I’ll leave those things to the decision-makers,” adds the striker.

To learn Majoro’s views on working with the stern former Bucs mentor, Vladimir Vermezovic and his current goal scoring spree, read the full interview in issue 909 of Soccer Laduma.
