Benni Discusses Majoro’s Contract Situation

Lehlohonolo Majoro has been out of the Cape Town City squad since the team’s Telkom Knockout encounter back in May this year and Head Coach Benni McCarthy revealed that the contract discussions taking place is one of the influences currently distracting the player.

Majoro has been one of Head Coach McCarthy’s key players in his setup, however, the 31-year-old striker has been dropped from the squad in the team’s past three encounters.

In the 1-1 draw against Baroka FC in the Absa Premiership at the Cape Town Stadium, McCarthy opted to field Letsie Koapeng in his starting line-up ahead of the likes of Majoro and Judas Moseamedi who were not included in the squad based on form.

“Letsie’s case, I think over this break, the reason why he is in the side, he was the best striker I had over the three week period, he was very good on the ball and in training, firing from all cylinders. So, you can’t really ignore the boy when he gives you that kind of commitment,” McCarthy told the media.

“Some people wait till it is two days before we play and then they come to life and expect that they are going to be in the side, it doesn’t work like that, you have to work every day and that’s why I opted for Letsie instead of Majoro (and) Judas. 

“But I hope the Majoro’s issue can get sorted out quickly because I also want a clearer view of the players that I have at my disposal and have players be committed to the course, be committed to playing for me, for the team, their teammates and then be doing the job and not half-hearted because of uncertainty if he is going to stay or if he’s going to go, if he is going to get a new contract.It is stressful for the player as well, so hopefully, the chairman, Majoro and his party ties matter up quickly,” the 40-year-old concluded.
