Majoro Apologises To Pirates Fans

Orlando Pirates striker, Lehlohonolo Majoro who was both hero and villain in his sides’ 2-0 victory over strugglers Platinum Stars, has apologised for his actions which earned him a straight red card for lashing out on Dikwena winger, Mahlatsi Makudubela.

Majoro scored Pirates’ first goal of the match with a clever chip over Stars keeper, Kabelo Dambe following a pass from Oupa Manyisa, however was later sent off in the 65th minute of the game for stamping on Makudubela.

“I know what I did was wrong,” Majoro admits on his club's official website. " I acted out of anger and lost sight of what was important, which is my teammates and the Orlando Pirates brand.”

“The referee acted accordingly because I deserved the red card and I would like to apologise to the Orlando Pirates supporters and the entire football fraternity for my actions. I’m better than that, and they deserve better than that; I promise not to do it again.”

“I especially want to extend my apology to my colleague Mahlatsi. As professional footballers we should treat each other with respect and always set an example. I went to apologise to him immediately after the match because I realised the error of my ways and I had to tell him man to man that I was wrong,” added the Bucs striker.

"Ballojoro"s red card means he will miss the opening Nedbank Cup clash against Tornado FC, as well as the league clash against the high-flying Polokwane City.
