Johnson rules out any fresh bids for Majoro

With his contract at Kaizer Chiefs now null-and-void, Lehlohonolo Majoro will not be joining SuperSport United, coach Cavin Johnson tells Goal

SuperSport United boss Cavin Johnson has ruled out a late move for controversial striker Lehlohonolo Majoro, after he was released from his contract by Kaizer Chiefs over the weekend.

Majoro is now a free agent and has reportedly signed a pre-contract with Orlando Pirates, leaving Johnson unfazed by claims that the former Bafana Bafana striker could be joining United.

“No. We have Dino Ndlovu, we have Bradley Grobler, we have Joao de Oliviera, we have Mame Niang and we have Thabiso Nkoana,” Johnson revealed to Goal. His team defeated Tuks 1-0 in the opening round of the Nedbank Cup last night.

“For me, that is more than enough striking power."

The former AmaZulu man attracted interest from the likes of Mamelodi Sundowns, Ajax Cape Town and Matsatsantsa, but looks set to join the Buccaneers.

Shifting his attention to his team’s victory over AmaTuks, Johnson said he was delighted that his striker Mame Niang netted the only goal of the game deep into extra-time.

“We were the winners tonight. My players dug in deep. I thought we were worthy winners,” Johnson added to Goal.

“That’s the luxury we have with Mame. I thought we started very well.

“Bennett came in, he played it wide, crossed it in and Mame finished.

“We’ve qualified to play for the next round, which is great.”
