Majoro gave the Buccaneers the lead in the 45th minute of the game, however was later red-carded for his stamp on Dikwena winger, Mahlatse Makudubela, 20 minutes into the second half of the fixture.

“At no stage have I blasted "Major" or have had a go at him, the report from Daily Sun is a complete fabrication and is false,” Tinkler stated on Pirates’ website.

“That report is unprofessional journalism making up stories in an effort to destabilise the team and I will not allow that. If I had any issues with Majoro I wouldn’t express those feelings publicly as this is a private matter and would be dealt with in that manner.”

“Obviously, no coach would want to play minus one player especially in a match where there’s still a lot to play for. The red card to Majoro destabilised us slightly, we had to make some changes in order to help prevent Platinum Stars from scoring,” added Tinkler.

The Bucs mentor also appreciated 'Ballojoro's apologies, stating he was glad the striker realised his error.

“I am happy that he recognised his error and took the responsibility of his action by publicly apologising as well. I’m impressed with that because I think it’s a sign of maturity and I fully accept his apology,” concluded the Bucs coach.
