Kaizer Chiefs coach, Stuart Baxter, has confirmed that Lehlohonolo Majoro will play no further part in his plans for the current season. This was after the striker refused an offer to extend his contract at Naturena and appeared close to be joining SuperSport United instead.
The deal fell through to join Matsatsantsa after the player expressed his desire to move elsewhere. Speculation later had it that the 27-year-old had signed a pre-contract agreement with Orlando Pirates, and he would be joinining Bucs in June.
Pirates have since dismissed this speculation although it can't be ruled out that an agreement for the player to join Chiefs' fierce rivals could still be in place.
Nonetheless, Majoro's apparent desire to find a move to another club seems to have made up Baxter's mind about his role at Chiefs in the next few months. The Wolverhampton-born coach revealed that no one is sure what the player's next move will be, but that he would play no part in his plans for the foreseeable future.
He told the club's official website, "“I did not have a problem to work with Majoro when he was here. Majoro came to a conclusion that he needed more game time than what he got at the club. At the moment it throws us in limbo not knowing if 'Major' is coming or going. The situation is now a right-off. We are not in bad terms with him. As things stand, Majoro will not play for us and will have to find his next address.”
The Siya crew will continue to monitor where Majoro's next potential destination could be.
