Musona vs Majoro: The Carling Black Label Cup matchup

Former Kaizer Chiefs teammates and main attacking threats for their respective clubs, Musona and Majoro are two prospective match-winners in the Carling Black Label 2014
Attacking threats

Majoro, who now plays for his boyhood club Orlando Pirates, left the Amakhosi in February after refusing to sign a new contract. His move has intensified an already fierce rivalry, as the Pirates frontman scored the Kaizer Chiefs’ winner in last season’s Cup. Let’s take a look at each team’s main attacking threat:

Knowledge Musona

Zimbabwean international, Knowledge ‘Smiling Assassin’ Musona has filled the vacancy left by Majoro’s departure nicely, scoring 8 goals for the Amakhosi during the 2013/2014 PSL season. His combination with Bernard Parker in particular proved decisive, and helped Chiefs claim 2nd spot on the overall log.

Ever since his return to the club last season, the 1,74-metre Musona has combined his powerful shot with remarkable striking prowess to become one of the most exciting players in the country. Hugely popular with the Amakhosi faithful, Musona will look to hit the ground running as Kaizer Chiefs look to defend their Carling Black Label Cup title this year.

Lehlohonolo Majoro

Free State born, Lehlohonolo ‘Major’ Majoro has struggled to make an impact for his new club following his controversial move after being released by Chiefs in February. The prolific forward has been hampered by injuries and poor form, failing to score a single goal for a Pirates outfit that have been very inconsistent during the 2013/2014 season.

When in form, Majoro is comfortable playing behind the target-man, with his well-timed runs and his ability to score in one-on-one situations his most noticeable skills. The outspoken forward’s huge appetite for goals and international experience still make him one of the country's most feared strikers, and a true asset for Pirates going into the Carling Black Label Cup 2014.

So Coach, who do you think will make the difference in this year’s Carling Black Label Cup? Will Musona step up and fire Chiefs to victory, or will Majoro haunt his old team and lead Pirates to a third Carling Black Label Cup title?
