Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana striker Mark Williams advised Orlando Pirates forward Lehlohonolo Majoro to leave the Buccaneers if he wants to regain his form.

The former Kaizer Chiefs forward has only made 15 appearances in all competitions for Pirates this season, scoring just once, and Williams believes it's time for the 29-year-old to move.

"Look, for a striker it's all about the confidence - Majoro does not have that at the moment due to lack of game time at Pirates. He was scoring goals when the season started alongside Kermit Erasmus, but that is not happening now," Williams told Goal website.

"The other problem with our players is that there is a time when they think that they are bigger than the game. With his situation and not getting game time, maybe the best option would be to leave Pirates and find a club where he can play regularly."

"As a striker you can only score goals when you are playing regular football, but he cannot do that now.

"For me he is a natural goalscorer and he must leave Pirates in order to get back to his best again because Pirates is a big club and it is never easy for any player. He also needs to work harder.

"Sometimes as a player you need to go to your coach and say; 'coach, where do I need to improve, what is it that I'm not doing right and am I still in your plans."

"That helps a player know where his future lies because I think at the moment he is in the deep end because even Thamasanqa Gabuza is struggling for game time and form," Williams concluded.
