Majoro happy to bide his time

Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker Lehlohonolo Majoro says that he does not have a problem sitting on the bench, as long as those ahead of him in the pecking order are playing well.

Preview: Pirates vs Polokwane

The 28-year-old has predominantly been used off the bench since joining the club at the beginning of the year, with Kermit Erasmus currently Vladimir Vermezovic's first choice attacker.

Erasmus has had his shooting boots on thus far this season, with the 24-year-old scoring three times in the league and twice in the MTN8. As a result, Majoro says that he is content to sit with the replacements, as the team comes first.

“People always create their own issues,” Majoro told KickOff of speculation that he is unhappy at the club.

“What people don’t understand about me is... you know, they think I give up easily or I become frustrated easily.”

“It’s not like that. I can sit on the bench and watch someone play in my position. If he’s doing well I will never complain – ever! My problem is sitting on the bench when the guy playing is not doing well and I am not given an opportunity.”

“Kermit has been doing well; even when he wasn’t scoring people never noticed that he was assisting. Kermit and I play a lot alike in terms of our style of play, and I understand that we can’t both play at the same time.”

“There is going to come a time when Kermit will need a break because of fatigue and it will be my turn to step up, and it will keep like that throughout the season.”

Meanwhile, Pirates look to bounce back of consecutive defeats (Chippa United and Kaizer Chiefs) when they meet Polokwane City in the Telkom Knockout on Sunday, October 5 at the Orlando Stadium in Soweto.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
