Majoro hopes to silence critics

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs striker Lehlohonolo Majoro says his four-goal haul in the Nedbank Cup at the weekend will go a long way towards silencing his critics.

Majoro put Black Leopards to the sword when he netted all the goals in Amakhosi' 4-0 last-16 victory at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday evening.

"No-one did me favours when I signed for Chiefs. I worked very hard at Amazulu and deserved my move," he told Football411.com.

"But people keep saying that I have been firing blanks since joining Chiefs, but I know that the club signed me because I am capable of scoring goals," he says.

The 25-year-old scored 14 times for Usuthu last season, but his move to Chiefs was deemed 'too soon' as he was only in his first season with the Durban outfit, and it was also suggested he was a one-season wonder.

However, Majoro believes his goal scoring record speaks for itself, saying: "I have scored 13 goals for Chiefs this season, which is one short of the goals I scored for Amazulu last season so that shows you that I'm no one-season wonder.

"It was not easy at the beginning but I knew that it was only a matter of time before I settled at the club. Hard work always pay off."

Despite his big boost in confidence after his fine display in Polokwane, the Ladybrand-born striker says the thought of finishing the season as the PSL's top scorer are far from his mind.

"I think once you think a lot about individual awards, you tend to be selfish. So I'm not after the award. My focus is on helping Chiefs do well in the league and the Nedbank Cup," Majoro concluded.
