Majoro’s patience paying off

Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates striker Lehlohonolo Majoro believes patience will be the virtue of his success at the Soweto giants following his two world class goals in an MTN8 win over Bidvest Wits on Saturday.

The former Kaizer Chiefs and AmaZulu forward came off the bench in the last 15 minutes of the semi-final encounter to seal victory for his team, earning himself the man-of-the-match award.

The 28-year-old goal-poacher is yet to break into the Pirates first team following his controversial move from arch rivals, Chiefs, earlier in the year.

The Ladybrand-born player believes his impressive performance on the night may be a golden ticket to the Buccaneers starting line-up as they have been struggling for a finishing touch thus far this season.

“Firstly, I want to give thanks to the Almighty God for giving me the strength to be patient on the bench,” said Majoro.

“I also want to give credit to the coach, technical team and my team-mates.

“They also encouraged me to be patient on the bench and always advising me that my time will come. And my time came tonight (Saturday).

“I saw the ‘keeper approaching and then I also saw the distance between him and the goal posts. I then decided to just loop the ball over him and it went in.

“Patience is a virtue and to me these two goals were the stepping stone to getting my performance back and maybe into the starting eleven.

“But it’s up to the coach and we also have so many quality players in the team. Hard work and patience is the way to go.”

Majoro will be looking to keep his momentum flourishing when the Buccaneers face reigning Absa Premiership champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, on Wednesday night.

The match will be played at the Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria (19:30 kick-off).
