Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates caretaker coach Eric Tinkler says he was disappointed with the behaviour of Lehlohonolo Majoro after the striker received his marching orders in an Absa Premiership clash against Platinum Stars on Saturday.

The Ladybrand-born forward was also on target on the day alongside Lennox Bacela as the Buccaneers added to Dikwena’s misery by beating them 2-0 at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace.

In the 62nd minute of the game, Pirates were reduced to ten men after Majoro was dismissed for a stamp on Mahlatsi Makudubela.

The 28-year-old forward then lost his cool as he tried to retaliate to the match officials in anger, which infuriated Tinkler.

“I didn’t clearly see what he did during the game,” Tinkler told Sport24 in an exclusive interview on Monday.

“But I then watched the footage on TV and I got a clear view on what happened.

“And I’m very disappointed with his behaviour but after the game he came back to the pitch and apologise to his team-mates and the opposition team.

“It’s good that he came to his senses and realise his mistake but as a technical team we are still going to assess the matter and see a way forward.

“But his behaviour was really uncalled for.”

Majoro will miss Pirates’ Nedbank Cup opener against Tornado FC on Wednesday, and also two PSL clashes against Polokwane City and Free State Stars.
