Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana striker Mark Williams believes Lehlohonolo Majoro may have made a mistake in joining Cape Town City FC ahead of the new season.

Majoro signed a two-year-deal with the newly acquired Premiership-side on Tuesday after the Soweto giants placed the 29-year-old on the transfer-list back in July.

"It's quite interesting that Majoro is going to City, last year he was with Pirates and the same coach, Eric Tinkler, did not play him. So what is he going to do there?" Williams asked Soccer Laduma.

The former Kaizer Chiefs forward struggled to garner game-time under the tutelage of Tinkler at the Mayfair based outfit last season - featuring in 20 games in all competitions, mostly in cameo appearances off the bench.

Majoro has amassed 154 appearances, scoring 46 goals in all competitions since making his debut in the top-tier of South African football for AmaZulu in the 2010/11 season and Williams suggested that his experience and goal scoring record is what Tinkler's side needs for the debut season in the Premiership.

"Majoro has experience, the boy is sharp and he can score goals and maybe that's what they need, maybe it's what he needs," Williams concluded.
