Cape Town - Orlando Pirates midfielder Thandani Ntshumayelo reveals that he does not see Lehlohonolo Majoro as arrogant.

Read: Bucs' fringe players getting form

In September, Sport24 reported that Lehlohonolo Majoro claimed that other players were under the impression that the Orlando Pirates forward was arrogant when he arrived at the club.

The 28-year-old said, “The truth is most of them (Pirates players) thought I was arrogant when I first arrived I didn’t just arrive and start making jokes; I got there and greeted each and every one. When you arrive at a new team, you are expected to come and show respect to the ones who are already there.”

According to Goal.com, Thandani Ntshumayelo reveals that he saw a normal player when Majoro arrived from Naturena.

“I have not been close to Majoro before," said Ntshumayelo.

“I only knew Majoro when we played against Chiefs inside the field of play. So, I can't say he is arrogant or what, but when he came to Pirates I saw a normal player.

"I didn't see him as an arrogant individual or anything like that.”

Despite starting the season as a "super-sub" for the Buccaneers, Majoro has been in fine form and has already found the back of the net four times. 

Majoro and his Orlando Pirates teammates will look to continue their climb up the Absa Premiership log when local action resumes this weekend.

The Sea Robbers host Free State Stars at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday, October 18. Kick-off is at 20:15.
