Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs may not have won any silverware this season, but
striker Lehlohonolo Majoro says joining Amakhosi has benefited his
Majoro arrived at Naturena from AmaZulu at the start of the
season and has scored 15 goals in 25 starts for the Glamour Boys, which
is one strike less than his season tally with Usuthu.
However, the Bafana Bafana international says the slight dip in
form is to be expected, given the pressure that comes with playing for
one of South Africa's most decorated clubs.
"I knew when I joined Kaizer Chiefs that I was going to be put
under a lot of pressure and I know people were asking themselves why
Chiefs signed me," Majoro told Football411.
"I understood because people have seen a lot of players in the
past who performed well for smaller clubs only to fail with the big
teams so I knew they would be watching me, but on the other hand I knew I
was not a one-season wonder. I came to Chiefs because it was my
long-term goal to play for the club.
"So I came here well prepared mentally for the challenge of
playing for the team and I was well aware of the expectations that I
must score goals. I think I have improved a lot. I have improved in
terms of my thinking and the timing of my runs so I'm hoping to score
many goals next season so I can help the club win trophies.
However, the 25-year-old admits there is still room for improvement.
"I have improved and matured as a player since arriving at
Chiefs, but it doesn't mean I must stop learning. I think I still need
to work on my first touch, so there is still room for improvement,"
