Lehlohonolo Majoro fails to make Orlando Pirates move

Majoro was at the Orlando Stadium during the Pirates game against SuperSport United, and the 27-year-old former AmaZulu player was hoping to finalize his move to Parktown today
Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung has confirmed that striker Lehlohonolo Majoro still belongs to the AmaKhosi family after his proposed move to Orlando Pirates fell through.

Speaking on Metro FM on Friday, Motaung said the club was willing to let Majoro join Pirates, but the Caf Champions League finalists didn't come back to them to finalize the deal.

Majoro signed a pre-contract with the Buccaneers earlier this month, but he will only be able to join them after his contract with Chiefs has expired in June.

Pirates were keen to have Majoro before the closing of the January Transfer Window today (Friday), but they will now have the player next season.

The 27-year-old Majoro refused to extend his stay at Chiefs late last year, and although he was thought to be on the verge of signing for SuperSport United, he snubbed the deal on the eleventh hour.

Majoro will certainly not form part of Stuart Baxter's plans this season after the former Bafana Bafana coach confirmed that 'Major' will not play for Chiefs until he finds his next address.

The former AmaZulu forward will continue to follow a programme drawn by Kaizer Chiefs until the end of the season, as he continues to honour his contract.
